It will work as long as the whole spool moves. You cannot link
individual hierarchies such as comp/*, because these contain hard links
into the message.id/ directories.

However, for leafnode-1, you must make sure that the path name length
remains unchanged should you later choose to recompile leafnode with a
different --with-spooldir= setting. leafnode-2 doesn't suffer from this
