Correction. The uids don't use that many memory. You can more easily
measure this by assuming that the largest uid-size is "9999\0" so 5
bytes multiplied by 10.000 gives you 50.000 bytes.

Nevertheless that doesn't take away the fact that you can't get the uids
in a sorted way, and that evolution loads all CamelMessageInfo instances

By the way ... tinymail loads evolution's hackers mailing list using 3
megabytes (measured with valgrind).

The most important object to create a proxy instance for is the

Try to avoid keeping the references coming from camel_store_get_folder.

Because tinymails design is heavily based on the proxy design pattern, I
managed to cut 12 megabytes of CamelFolder instances.
