But not really possible to implement as the importance is rather
subjective and dependant on the context. Example:
foo-1.0.1 is a trivial update to foo-1.0.0
foo-1.0.2 is a trivial update to foo-1.0.1
now is foo-1.0.2 also a trivial update to foo-1.0.0 ?
You'd have to define the importance against all previous versions or
find a very intelligent algorithm that makes everyone happy.
Also who should define the importance ? The ebuild maintainer might have
a different opinion about what's important than you (not to mention that
it just adds one more piece of information that has to be maintained).

In the beginning, there was nothing. And God said, 'Let there be
Light.' And there was still nothing, but you could see a bit better.
