all tcl/tk manpages go into "mann", call it historic reason.
Diffrent tcl/tk versions install the same manpage at the same locaion.
This is intended, The common manpages have only minor differences.
If you deinstall the ports in any order, all manpages are removed.

both will be harmfull.
- CONFLICTS will keep useres from ruinning more then one version.
diffrent versions are needed for Applications
cause tcl/tk API changed so much.
- moving man in a diffrent path will obsolete tutorials and handbooks
There might be even application that fails.
I would like to hear more arguments why the current state gives problems.
kind regards Dirk
