Right, I get that. However, say I have 20 custom labels: the first 10
'Personal0..Personal9' and the second 10 'List0..List9', plus all the
other the default labels.

If I want to search everything (Inbox, Personal Lists, Trash, etc just
like a normal search) _except_ the lists (List0..List9), I have to
exclude them manually (one at a time).
