[Exherbo-dev] Masks

How's about a new repo / profile masks format?

    masks/
        (arbitrary directories, nested)/
            some-name.conf

The arbitrary directories would probably just be 2009-06/, or possibly
security/2009-06/, broken/2009-06/ scm/2009-06/ etc -- the package
mangler won't care.

some-name.conf will look like:

    type = broken
    author = Your Name <you at example.com>
    summary = Das ist kaput!
    description = Mostly won't build yet. Various options don't work \
        at all.

    cat-foo/bar[>=1.23]
    cat-foo/baz[>=1.23]

Values for type are scm, broken, testing, security.

We could probably add in review-after: some-date and write a QA tool
that lists any mask with a review-after the current date.
