Providing a total count in all folders could be very costly. First,
what about imap where you have a server that can store thousands of
emails for you, then local folders. Take my case where I have over 150
local folders consisting of emails I have received over 20 years.

Wouldn't it just be counting the totals from the index of each folder,
not counting all the messages?
Certainly more attractive to read the index files, but still costly. Remember that there also could be imap folders. Certainly tbird could keep a running count and update it as it fetch's the email. The "show expanded columns in folder pane" seems to be the closest it comes to what the OP wants.
