Package: kmail

I was manually migrating some of my old mail from Mozilla to Kmail, using a 
single ~450MB mbox file as input to Kmail.  I have Kmail configured to use 
~/Mail as the directory with mbox files as the default format.

Kmail loaded the new mbox fine:  ~33,000 new messages.  I sorted the messages 
by date, selected the messages I wanted to trash, and hit the "delete" key.  
Kmail took about 5 minutes at pegged CPU to move 20,000 messages (110MB) to 
Trash.  Then I right-clicked Trash and selected "Empty Trash".  Kmail took an 
additional 5 minutes at pegged CPU to empty the Trash folder.

It's OK for the first step (moving to Trash) to take a couple minutes -- the 
mbox must be rewritten to disk sometime.  However, the second step (emptying 
Trash) should be essentially instantaneous.  Emptying an entire folder should 
be equivalent to 'rm filename'.

I moved to Kmail largely due to its speed improvements over Mozilla.  In this 
case it IS still a lot faster -- Mozilla took about 40 minutes to delete only 
10,000 messages -- but it is still embarrassing to blow 10 minutes of 2.4GHz+ 
CPU to manipulate only 300MB.
