What I do, and I'm not sure it matches your use case exactly, is to hang 
a number
of project- or category-specify smart mailboxes from my Inbox, and add 
an extra
one, named "Uncategorized", and with a "not in any of those folders" 
(which is what Robert seemed to be suggesting).

A couple of years ago, I couldn't see how to do this, mailed Benny to 
ask for
what I thought was a new feature, and got the advice I needed.

I hardly ever visit my Inbox itself, as this set of smart mailboxes 
gives me
the triage I need.

I hope this helps.
