[pacman-dev] [feature request] ignore certain file conflicts

Hi pacman devs,
Sometimes it happens that a user has to force an upgrade because pacman
detects an file conflict.
Some of those cases are caused by the known link vs. regular file/directory
Others are caused by the fact that a file wasn't tracked by pacman before.
(e.g. something that was created by an install script before and is part of
the package itself now)
I am not sure if the first case can even be fixed at all. So what about an
variable I could define in the PKGBUILD which would handle this?
I am not sure if this is completly insane and how difficult to implement this
