I honestly don't understand the reason for this. If someone wants to not
see messages that they have tagged as 'deleted', they add 'and not
tag:deleted' to the end of the search expression.
The messages aren't actually deleted because they have the 'deleted'
tag, so why would they not be shown?
If it's really intended that those messages not be shown then perhaps
the tag should be called 'not-shown' or something.

The name 'deleted' for the tag should be a configuration option, as a
non-English speaker (for example) might want to use something else.
