devel package conflicts with libtorrent-devel

The rb_libtorrent-devel and libtorrent-devel RPMs conflict with each other... :-(
Hi, Denis; sorry for the delay. Unfortunately, both package currently install
libtorrent.so symlinks as well as a libtorrent/ directory in the system-level
includes (e.g., /usr/include).
Patching rb_libtorrent to rename these would then cause a larger degree of
incompatibilities (since everything that uses it would have to be patched to
look for a different SONAME, et al.)
My understanding is that work is underway on both upstreams to resolve the
issue; but nothing is set in stone yet. Sorry for the inconvenience. :(
Setting as RESOLVED/UPSTREAM; and hopefully we can get both upstreams
cooperating on this naming...
