File conflict between kpackagekit and gnome-packagekit

Description of problem:
Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.PackageKit.service from install of kpackagekit-0.6.0-0.1.20100111.fc13.i686 conflicts with file from package gnome-packagekit-2.29.2-1.fc13.i686
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I'm not sure how to solve this, as they really do provide the same API, and they are both autostarted. Maybe just make them conflict? You really don't want both installed at the same time, as they will be treading on each others toes.
If the file can be the same for both of them, then making it the same will fix the problem.
If they run as part of a user session, then you might want both installed at the same time, but not running at the same time.
I can envision a scenario where a machine can have both gnome and kde installed, and users of each would want their preferred pk client installed and functional (not necessarily with fast-user switching, that's another can of worms).
The file in KPackageKit can be renamed to /usr/share/dbus-1/services/kde-org.freedesktop.PackageKit.service and it should still get found. (This is done in other places too.)
Implemented Kevin's suggestion in kpk-0.6.0-0.2
(if we find no problems/regressions with it, can upstream the workaround as well)
