A MacOSXHints reader submitted a simple trick to allow app launcher utilities like LaunchBar, Butler and others to search Gmail. All you have to do is add a new search template to your launcher of choice with a specific URL and you're off to submitting Gmail search queries from [insert launcher name here]. The query URL to use is:

http://mail.google.com/mail/?search=query&view=tl&start=0&init=1&fs=1&q=*
But check the MacOSXHints post for instructions on how to tweak that line depending on which launcher you're using. For Quicksilver users, a comment on their post revealed the line you have to use (I think you have to have the Web Search Module plugin in order to be able to add this search to your catalog):
http://mail.google.com/mail/?search=query&view=tl&start=0&init=1&fs=1&q=***
Enjoy.
