Some time ago (31 Oct 2008) I renamed 
perl-core/File-Spec-3.2701 to perl-core/File-Spec-3.27.01
by adding the new file and removing the other.

I expected portage to do an downgrade.

It didn't.

I realised it when i got this bug <>
and after joining #-portage I add a mask for a non-existing package to

Today I was CC'ed to because "package.mask
contains invalid entries".

In the meantime another bug was filed about portage "doesn't attempt to
downgrade packages on keyword changes..." <>
with a fix.

I am confused. Will portage warn about the downgrade now and forever?
