I haven't heard a request for this before. But I think if you set Mask
Layer to the opposite of Layer then you would get this result.

Maybe you mean something like the Object Index pass? The question
isn't really clear to me though. Every pixel is the average of N
samples, and with the Object Index pass you can find roughly which
object each pixel corresponds to, but it's not exact because there are
multiple samples per pixel.
