None of the suggested solutions will prevent the packages from working
out of the box.  No further configuration is necessary as long as
there is only one package providing the httpd service installed.

The question is what to do when the adminstrator wants to install a
second httpd package.  Should the maintainer enforce a policy using
conflicts, or should the adminstrator get to choose?  Either way, you
can't make it work out of the box.  Your choices are
 a) allow it to work, depending on configuration
 b) deny it from ever working

I prefer a).

No nukes!
