We don't have a hold state only a keep state. Once a package is flagged
'keep' then that's it, there is no changing that [by deity, of course you
can]. But you may only flag a package 'keep' if the package is installed
and upgradeable. (see emails a week back on this) 

Behan: How do you want selecting an uninstallable package for installation
handled and other issues with impossible installation situations that
cannot be resolved automatically?
