A similar thing between py27-qt5 and py37-qt5:

pkg_add: Conflicting PLIST with py27-qt5-5.13.1nb1: bin/pylupdate5

In this case, I expect the files to be nearly identical, since once is

exec /usr/pkg/bin/python2.7 -m PyQt5.pylupdate_main ${1+"$@"}

so I expect the other to have a 3 instead of a 2.

Would it make sense to rename these files to py[23]7-pylupdate5,
or pylupdate5-py[23]7, or pylupdate[23]7-5, or ... ? Or do something
with ALTERNATIVES, such as with devel/py-test-watch/ALTERNATIVES?
