I tried that a while ago.  The problem is that then portage believe
those packages aren't on my stable system and says that I must merge an
unstable package.

Specifically excluding the buggy (old) version of webkit-gtk, portage
wants me to merge a newish (testing) version of gnucash that uses a
solid new version of webkit-gtk.  I have the new version of webkit-gtk,
but really want to delay installing the testing gnucash.
