But nothing would remove the /usr/local/bin/fish symlink when the new
fish package gets erased.  You'd need to %ghost it in the specfile.

Or you could try if "Conflicts: fish < 1.6" would result in the need of
manually erasing the earlier fish package before installing the new one
(untested, and probably not).

Anyway, I don't see a clean solution to this, and I'd personally just
declare upgrading from the earlier version as unsupported.
