It seems to make no difference whether it gets moved to Trash (where I
assume it is simply being marked as deleted rather than expunged) or to
a real subfolder within the mail directory.

My mailbox is probably around 200 MB (since I've downloaded all my Gmail
messages for a mixture of backup and beagling reasons) and doesn't seem
to take too long for beagled to index. I've found that deleting the
Evolution-related folders from ~/.beagle and restarting beagled forces a
reindex without causing any noticeable problems with performance so far.

That's good to hear. I will sit patiently and wait :-)
