I think you are referring to this proposal?

"I propose to keep the following keywording rules for whatever we do from 
now:
1) only keyword new packages ~ppc-macos; don't stable them after a month 
2) only stable new ebuilds if this is required by security stuff and we 
   have an older ebuild that is stable"

Maybe you can add,

3) if need be, a non-system package may be stabled, even if it has 
   collisions.

and then add autoconf-2.59 to the Panther base system for the progressive 
profile, and mask ruby from the Panther conservative profile.
