[Pulp-dev] uniqueness constraints within a repository version

Do I understand correctly that it doesn't cover the sync case and it's only
about explicit repo version creation?
So the suggestion is to implement the same logic twice: for sync case -
RemoveDuplicates stage and/or maybe some custom stage (e.g. to disallow
overlapping paths), and for direct repo version creation - your proposal.
