No - this conversation is entire about the alternative system. We are talking about priorities within the alternative system (as implemented in other distros).
E.g. when installing python3 and python2 in the same transaction, which one should be symlinked to /usr/bin/python?
Sure, I understood that. But I'm talking about actually implementing a priority system in pacman.
I'm thinking first one installed wins. It also avoids decisions about whether pacman should automatically update alternatives to a higher priority package if it gets installed later.
As long pacman has an easy way to set the priorities, I'm fine with this behavior.
