His point is still valid even if all maintainers do proper testing. You
can't be expected as a maintainer to be able to test /every/ possible or
impossible situation in which a package could be used. And then I'm not
even talking about packages that should conflict with eachother but
don't, because the maintainer of the new package didn't know that a file
in his package happens to have the same name as a different file in a
completely unrelated package...
