These aren't actually cache related problems. These are mbox bugs.

Switching to maildir results in millions of files and this overwhelmes my backup system. mdbox also does not qualify since AFAIK there is no python or perl library support for manipulating mdbox mailboxes.

You shouldn't need to manipulate mdboxes directly. You can manipulate them via doveadm binary or doveadm protocol. That way you could also later on switch between any mailbox formats without changing your manipulation tools.
