There is one other option that pops to mind...

You can using incoming.conf on the receiving server to limit what 
articles actually make it through, and then use the method in the FAQ 
for sending the whole spool.  This results in the same amount of 
bandwidth usage (and disk read time on the sender) that moving your 
entire spool over would, but if you have a relatively small spool to 
begin with, you might consider this as being fairly easy alternative.
