True, we don't yet have a mechanism whereby you can indicate that
package X conflicts with package Y, but if package X would overwrite
any files in package Y, you'd get an error (warning, really) installing
X, and you'd have to force it.  We're working on conflicts and
dependencies in rpm version 2.

Of course, none of this works if the two packages come from different
package systems.
