As I understand it, every one of these package removals is first
package.masked for 30 days before the ebuilds are actually removed.
So, the user has a month in which to do something about this. When they
sync and try to update any time during that month, they will see a
message, telling them that that package is scheduled for removal, and
pointing them at the relevant bugs in bugzilla.

So, isn't package.mask already that "database"? Or am I missing
something?
