While it might be possible, we currently aren't doing that. It shouldn't 
be too difficult to implement, but it would have to be semi-smart and 
check if that package ever existed, as some developers add masks before 
adding packages and we don't want those automatically removed.

I have a simple script that outputs all masks that aren't actually 
masking anything. I run it every once in a while and remove such masks 
(after, of course, looking at the comments), and this has been working 
fine so far.
