[Exherbo-dev] Changing repo and profile masks

We seem to want to be able to classify repo and profile masks as things
like 'security', 'scm' and 'prerelease'. So a user could unmask foo, but
only if it's masked for being a prerelease, using something like:
One option is to just extend the profile and repo mask files like this:
# Eva Hansen Braun <ehb at exherbo.org> (29 Feb 2011)
# foo betas aren't recommended for general use.
Or we could come up with a new format. This would also allow us to
avoid having to parse # comments, which always struck me as being
rather disgusting. One suggestion was something like:
date = [ 29 Feb 2011 ]
masked_by = [ Eva Hansen Braun <ehb at exherbo.org> ]
comment = [ foo betas aren't recommended for general use. ]
This wouldn't allow -lines, though, so once applied masks couldn't be
cancelled. Do we really need this feature?
