Yes, nnml seems to be a more popular backend than nnfolder.  Another
popular backend is nnimap, for those who have this kind of server.
And then there is nnmaildir, which has its own advantages.

Personally, I use nnimap for some accounts and nnml for others.  I've
been thinking about migrating to nnmaildir, but somehow the courage
is lacking :-|

don't /need/ to migrate, if they don't want to.  That's why I wrote
