You really don't want that. Example of why not:

You're using ::gentoo and ::foo-experimental. foo-1.2_alpha1 is
in ::foo-experimental. Then foo-1.2_alpha2 comes along, also
in ::foo-experimental. Then foo-1.2 is released, and it goes
into ::gentoo. If we didn't count version as more important than
relative repository importance, you wouldn't get the upgrade.

You can mask:


And then unmask


since unmasks override masks.
