Because sometimes there are changes which break the API for all
And a minimum requirement also makes it easier to package software,
since you don't have to specify a minimum version in every package (as
long as it can live with the minimum version and doesn't need a newer
one, then you have to add an API depends there).

It conflicts because the files included in there were previously
included in mit-krb5, so the packages cannot be installed
