I might consider this as an advanced preference if a patch was  
provided.  But only in IMP 5 - this won't be backported to IMP 4.

No.  Trash is enabled.  It is expensive to search a mailbox to  
determine if there are messages marked as deleted just to activate a  
UI element.  This should not be overhead for every mailbox viewed when  
using the trash.

Sure there is.  Just select the message you want and click on delete.   
Adding an expunge button requires just as much effort, while  
cluttering the UI with an option a user has explicitly said they don't  
want to deal with (Trash implies no expunging is needed).
