I remember when gmail didn't support POP3 !  When it first came out, it
was just an online email system.  It couldn't serve anything.  Now I
don't know how I would live without it.

If we want to get serious about this problem, it wouldn't be hard for
Evolution to see that the file size is approaching the size limit for
the OS and split a "folder" into 2 files.   The problem with manually
splitting folders is that I don't think there is an <easy> way to search
both of them simultaneously.  Although I have to admit I haven't tried
to do that yet, nor have I played much with vfolders...
