Think axial leads instead. Now you can mount two flat down on the board,
rather less than a diameter apart and rest one on top of them, with
longer lead wires. The fourth one is a bit more dodgy - you need to
anchor it in place with a nylon tie.
But that still takes up much more room than four radial-leaded parts. I
suppose you could cross-stack the axial-lead parts like cordwood, if you
have enough height.
