Hm, you are right. But conlict resolution works for -S only (not for -U). And
fileconflicts cannot be resolved either...: Anyway, for pkglist<->pkglist
fileconflict check+resolution we could use your check_conflict function (just
using does_fileconflict as the "atomic" comparison (parameter)); and for
pkg<->filesystem conflict we could use -Qo to determine the owner of the
conflicting local file and may resolve the conflict by removing the owner.
Bye, ngaba
