I know many people who use this as a feature.

This seems reasonable to me. In this case one can even have multiple
tabs open on different folders and each of them is showing the number
of new messages. But changing the current behavior will confuse some
users because they're not used to switch to Inbox in order to display
the number of newly arrived messages.

This is not really an option for me. Why removing an existing (and
well used) feature?
