Does having too many sub-folders slow down retrieval times?

My question is similar to this one, except I'm interested in knowing whether it's bad to have too many sub-folders in a folder (as opposed to files).

How many sub-folders within a folder is too many? If I have something like 2 million sub-folders in a folder, will that slow down the retrival time of files within one of those sub-folders?
