As always you make 1/2 sense .... I blame your lack of (recreational) drugs and booze :(
I've thought this through ( 3 cheers for the blonde and all that ) and I can only see one problem ... maybe 2 .... ish ...
"Billions of folders" .... correct but, from a coding pov it's the easiest path ( "rm media/blogs/myblogs/foo.jpg -fr" removes any/all cached versions )
Also, I upload a fair few pictures, I'd hate a "640/480" folder that had millions of pictures in it ( ok, ok, .... maybe 2 dozen :| ) that I'd carefully separated into subfolders already ..... I have my OCD "must tidy the server up" moments :|
A possible compromise would be to have a media/blogs/blog/sub/folder/.evocache/fit-both-requirements/your_cool_picture.jpg ... would require a tad of a recode though .... good news is, it's not me that would have to recode it .. so you have my support :D
