You can't switch forth and back as the functions that map Message.IDs to
the corresponding message.id/NNN/ directory don't match in leafnode-1
and leafnode-2, so the spool would need to be converted so that access
can work. I'd recommend using using the --prefix and --enable-spooldir
options to install leafnode-2 into a different directory.

I cannot currently guarantee that the texpire function of leafnode-2
will get the conversion from a leafnode-1 spool right, and I expect
leafnode-2's expire to undergo changes in the future.
