  It would be very nice to allow coexistence of conflicting packages.

  By the way, there are two related conflicts:
  1) I assume there is a silent conflict between btparse and p5-Text-BibTeX,
     since the latter includes at least part of btparse internally, though
     I haven't tried installing both.
  2) The btparse package and the bibparse packages conflict.  In this case,
     the conflicting names are in both PLISTs, so the tools prevent the
     collision, though it would be better to permit coexistence.
  Thanks for the reply.
