The problem isn't openmotif's packaging, the problem is the way lesstif
is being packaged in Fedora.

Think about how you manage parallel installation of different versions
of kde/Qt. Any such Obsoletes: inside of the Fedora provided packages
would your 3rd party kde packages and would force you to use bizarre
packaging tricks, such as epoch tricks or playing games on package
names.
