Really you guys don't seem to be talking about scriptability, but filtering.
What if we got rid of the hard coded folders entirely in KMail and had each
"folder" be a filer? Then the trash "folder" could just have a filter such

+"All emails 45 days old + not read + not marked as important"
+"All emails 07 days old + marked as spam"
