Portage may not be smart enough to work around selective use of unstable
packages.  e.g., I've had to use lm-sensors-2.8.8 (masked with ~x86) to get
the package working, and have had to add a line to /etc/portage/package.mask
to keep 'emerge -u world' from downgrading the package.  If I set
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" then portage wants to upgrade _everything_ to
unstable.  Not good!  So with "<sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.8.8" in package.mask,
I get the following:

# emerge -D -u -p world

These are the packages that I would merge, in reverse order:

Calculating world dependencies -
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "sys-apps/lm-sensors" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your
request:
- sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.8.1 (masked by: package.mask)
- sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.7.0-r1 (masked by: package.mask)
- sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.8.8 (masked by: ~x86 keyword)
- sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.8.3 (masked by: package.mask)
- sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.8.5 (masked by: package.mask)
- sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.8.7 (masked by: package.mask)
- sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.8.2 (masked by: package.mask)
- sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.8.4 (masked by: package.mask)
- sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.6.5 (masked by: package.mask)
- sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.8.6 (masked by: package.mask)

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or 
section 2.2 "Software Availability" in the Gentoo Handbook.
!!!    (dependency required by "x11-misc/xsensors-0.46" [ebuild])


!!! Problem with ebuild x11-misc/xsensors-0.46
!!! Possibly a DEPEND/*DEPEND problem.

!!! Depgraph creation failed.

-----------

But if I comment out the restriction in package.mask, then portage wants to
install an older version of the package in a different slot, which probably
won't work since the old version doesn't grok my mainboard.

Quite frankly, I liked the -U ebuild option, which solves the problem, but
apparently -U is going to go away.

I know this is all rather OT for this list, but I appreciate the knowledge
and advice!
