We have to be much more prudent here, for now. I think about something like:
OfflineImap caches the state of the synchronisation to e.g. be able to
determine if a mail has been deleted on one side or added on the other.
The default and historical backend is 'plain' which writes out the
state in plain text files. On Repositories with large numbers of mails,
the performance might not be optimal, as we write out the complete file
for each change. Another new backend 'sqlite' is available which stores the
status in sqlite databases. BE AWARE THIS IS EXPERIMENTAL STUFF.
If you switch the backend, you may want to delete the old cache
directory in ~/.offlineimap/Account-<account>/LocalStatus[-sqlite]
manually. This is NOT a pre-requisite.
status_backend = plain
