Ideally, a package should have no conflicts. But the develment effort
can be hard. I'm not familiar with the issues involved in installing
a proxy server. Could you inform me? Maybe there is a way to make
cern, apache, spinner, etc. all independent packages that will be
congnizant and considerate of the other web servers installed. I'd
like to set that as a goal. But for expediency, I think we will have
to use conflicts.
