 D. Stussy reports in <news:gqh1ra$c58$1 at aux.snarked.org> that INN  makes
 zero length files for the traditional overview format but when the groups
 are empty, it is worthless.  It uselessly consumes lots of inodes.

 Russ Allbery writes that "there's no basic technical reason why that
 couldn't be done, but it simplified the code to not have to worry about
 that case, which is why it currently works the way it does."

 However, it would be better not to reserve resources.
