I know EPEL acknowledged that the whole repo-conflicts thing is an
issue that needed to be addressed... as has been rehashed many times,
they just didn't like repotags.

However, perhaps adding something into RPM itself could go a long way
to addressing this in a more integrated manner?


That thread might be a good place to request that something like this
be added.

Not sure how high of a priority everyone would consider it.
