Thanks for taking care. I am not even sure if someone is / will be using this
tool in Fedora. If you still plan to add this support it would be great to
incorporate it into depsolver (if possible) so the file conflicts errors would
be reported during / after resolution not by rpm after all packages are already
downloaded [1]. Or is there any function callable from C code on some package
set so we can run it after depsolving?
