A agree that it's correct in the sense that it reports the conflict that is declared by the package.
However, wouldn't it be nice if pkgin detected (and reported as a warning) the conflicts that are there clearly by mistake.
I think it's simply not user-friendly to produce errors like this and not giving the user to ignore the non-existing problem.

True, no questions about that.
