labeling a label or label query using wildcard


In GTD most people like to have a special naming convention for some contexts/labels to sort of group them.
I for example named my labels for persons starting with a dash like:

Now I like to search for every task connected to other persons with a query like "@-*" as "every label which starts with a dash".

If this is not possible, labeling a label (i.e. nested labels) would solve the issue also. My current workaround is to add this "@Person" label manually.

Is there anything like this or a possibility to do this in a more convenient way?

Hi Marcus,

There is no way to do this at this time, but we will consider adding sub-labels in the future. Feel free to add this to our votebox. http://todoist.com/Vote/
