"when the read status in a folder changes" - there is no such thing. 
 You know because you poll.

IDLE is a per-folder operation, so you would need to IDLE on every
folder.  That does not scale well.

At least this is what I believe, unless something has been added to
IMAP at some point [which would be nice, but I am unaware of it].

be some time to initially set all the counts but that's a one time 
thing and unless you have 100's of 1000's of folders and emails, 
very unlikely o be all that noticeable.

Having 100s of folders and thousands of messages would be the normal
situation in a modern mail account.
