IMAP inefficient, Maildir support?

Both I and a bunch of users have large mailboxes on one of our servers. Many of us use IMAP to access this mail.

Sure enough, because exim/cPanel does not use Maildir, it seems that accessing these mailboxes sucks up a lot of CPU time. I can see that many of these users (including myself) are among the top CPU-intensive users because of their imap usage (after viewing process listing).

In any case, I believe that if cPanel supported Maildir format, this would not be a problem (previously I had my imap inbox on a qmail server, which handled things much better).

Nick / cPanel, any plans for including this?

Anyone else have any interest in this?
