Improve cache loading performance

LogicMail currently loads all cached message headers from a folder before attempting to synchronize with the mail server. This process can be sufficiently slow to be annoying, especially with #211 likely leading to a dramatic increase in cached content.

The whole loading process needs to be profiled, bottlenecks found, and the user impact reduced.

Some ideas include:

  • Triggering the server flag sync at the same time as the cache load, since cache file names do indicate message UIDs
  • Speeding up the load in one of the following ways:
    • Finding/fixing deserialization bottlenecks
    • File data compression
    • Folder index files
  • Maintaining a second cache in the persistent store
  • Not loading all message headers until the user starts to scroll

Implemented through a complete rewrite and optimization of the folder message cache, using the persistent store and Persistable container objects.
