I think "All tags" section should show every tags and the count
regardless of exclude settings. It does that now if there is only one
excluding tag for a message. Messages are hidden if there are more
excluding tags.

Let's test:

    $ notmuch config set search.exclude_tags exclude-1 exclude-2
Now add "exclude-1" tag for some message and it will show in "All tags"
section with count 1.

    All tags: [hide]

           1 exclude-1

Now add also "exclude-2" tag for the same massage and see the "All tags"
section again.

    All tags: [hide]

           [neither exclude-1 nor exclude-2 here]

I think the section should show both tags and when a tag clicked it
should show all messages with that tag.

    All tags: [hide]

           1 exclude-1              1 exclude-2
