it is the number of articles that matters most, and to how many groups
they are cross-posted.

I don't think so, if you can spare the disk space for expired articles
for six more days (which I suppose).  There are no implicit dependencies
on texpire being run daily.  Leafnode was originally written in the
1990s when disk space was a premium. :)
