That's not (yet?) possible. If tor will be removed from gutsy (or a future 
development version), it's out until it's manually allowed back in. (Which I 
guess would be cumbersome to do for each development version, since I guess 
if we allow such treatment for one package, more will follow).

OTOH, if it weren't removed from gutsy until release, it will get released 
(and could then only be removed for a very good reason, like killing an 
absolutely amazingly and unbelievable large number of kittens).
