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.
