The ability to "hide" a label

If you're like me who goes to a school with your laptop everyday well knowing that people aren't able to keep their fingers away from your computer, you might need this:

Whenever I create a label with one or more torrents in that I don't like other people to see (For instance porn) I would like to be able to hide it. That means that you won't be able to see the label under the menu and the torrents wouldn't be under "all torrents". Then you could make a "boss-key" so that whenever you press that key you would be able to see the torrents - and reversed. This would really be a neat feature that I would love for you to make. It would really help me a lot.

Hope you know what I mean and that you support this feature!

Lock your computer to keep their fingers away. Create another user account if you actually want to allow them to use the computer without prying through your stuff. Use a separate instance of µTorrent with a boss-key for your hidden stuff if you want them to share your current account without seeing whatever it is you want to hide.

This feature quite simply isn't something that belongs with labels. Heck, even if you hid a label, it doesn't mean the torrents are hidden -- someone could just as easily click on any of the relevant categories at the top of the categories list (like "All"), and the torrents are magically viewable. If you want for hidden labels to hide torrents from those categories too... then well, that's just not going to happen, period, because it's horrible design. And at that point, you're not asking for hidden labels, but for hidden torrent jobs. The entire idea just reeks of bad design, and it's much simpler and more elegant to keep a separate instance to hide whatever you want to hide, as I mentioned above.
