[plug] gmail filters

You can create a really long "query" of not's that you'll need to update 
as new labels are created.

I have a saved search that goes something like...
-{label:PLUG label:Mailings label:Family .... }

This basically finds all messages with labels on them, then reverses the 
search (hence the brackets and the minus sign). In filters, put it into 
the "has the words" field.
In my quick test, this works as a filter, but I can promise it will 
work, due to order of gmail filters. And as I said, you'll need to 
modify it every time you add a label.
