I fell it will be slower compared to the other approach. You dont
rewrite the file entirely at all in normal usage. May be when you
expunge folder or export it, the summary data could be updated with
the mail's mbox. But its debatable at some level, I would say.

Sure, I think users should have that freedom. Camel's local folder
implementation has that built in. This new approach should be the
default for new users, and as option for users to migrate to it for
existing users. If users willingly stay with maildir or
1mbox-per-folder that should also be there.
