Please stop suggesting such crude workarounds. An administrator really
needs to know about these conflicts instead of packages randomly
overwriting each other's files. In the rare event of such a conflict,
one can always do

dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/...

manually if one is so inclined.
