In my opinion, paludis shouldn't use another repository (for upgrade), 
if I have installed package from another one. I know, that newer version 
is more     important, but when I add new repository, I must mask many 
packages, because of repository bouncing. If I want to install newer 
version from another repository, I will use paludis 
=category/name-version::repository -ip. I want to decide which 
repository I use for  packages instalation. Paludis can't do it instead 
of me.
Can I mask given repository (all packages from given repository) and 
then unmask only single packages from it?
