Having gnupg2 already installed, I wanted to install gnupg. The attempt ended with
the following result:

===> su-real-package-install [gnupg-1.4.23nb10] ===> Installing binary package of gnupg-1.4.23nb10
pkg_add: Conflicting PLIST with gnupg2-2.2.23: bin/gpgsplit
pkg_add: 1 package addition failed
*** Error code 1

Wouldn’t it be worthwhile to consider renaming bin/gpgsplit to bin/gpg2split? Or, being the
gnupg2 as “standard”, renaming bin/gpgsplit from gnupg1 to gpg1split?
