Good point.  I had overlooked that.

I'm not sure that I can make qmail do anything else.  These are spams
sent to non-existent addresses at my domain, being caught by
.qmail-default.  What I am going to do is clear out the Maildir daily
instead of monthly, though.  Collecting them has become a significant
drain on disk space---the 400K spams are the result of about a month
and a half of collection.
