how to selectively track experimental

I track unstable but still want to upgrade my experimental packages. The
following /etc/apt/preferences file does exactly that:

Package: *
Pin: release a=experimental
Pin-Priority: 499

Installed experimental packages like xfree-4.3 will be upgraded from the
highest version number, be it from experimental or other sources.list
entries, while keeping uninstalled experimental packages at bay.
