I guess here is such a case:

knm_new-fonts was split up from fonts-japanese, therefore it conflicts with an 
older version for fonts-japanese. I have also two review requests (vbetool 
and radeontool), that are splitups from pm-utils, do they need to conflict 
with the old version of pm-utils, too?
