Description of problem:
When you want to install two packages that modify the same files, an error occurs. Using rpm, you could force a write-over by issuing the --replacefiles option. No such option exists for up2date, nor does --force work.
How is one expected to overwrite httpd.conf or other such config files?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install httpd
2. create an rpm that has a file in it as /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
3. attempt to install both files, conflict occurs
Actual Results: conflict in files
