I think a few maintainers might get angry with you. <G> However, there is,
perhaps, a simple solution: file a bugreport automaticly. (If dpkg wanted
to be really slick, it could check what package the file being overwritten
belonged to, and include that detail.) This would require the bug-system
checking for duplicate bugs being filed (and merging or discarding).
