This is not completely true. There is a valid reason for setting
CONFLICTS if the overlap is in files that are not in the PLIST.
E.g. if the only conflict is in configuration files etc.

Use by pkgin is no justification, there could be a separate index
computed for a set of binary packages that provides conflict hints.
