Re: CONFLICTS variable is terrible

How to decide before I waste time downloading a package and its many 
dependencies and begin extracting / installing all of them to later find 
somewhere in that process that there is a conflict?

I agree we should work at fixing packages so they can install at same time 
(like "git"). But I still don't understand the value of getting rid of a 
CONFLICTS variable. (I read all your emails about this I think.)
