 The reverse_folders option was only designed to work on folders (directories). The monthly_index = 1 option is an unrelated feature which does not involve creating new directories. The folder_by_date option is generally better (especially for archives with thousands of messages where it avoids large index files and slow performance due to too many files in one directory), so I haven't given much thought to the monthly_index option since the folder_by_date option was implemented.
 It probably makes sense to apply reverse_folders to the monthly_index option. I will try to look into that next week.
