The CONFLICTS feature in ports is a nice feature but I feel it is lacking a simple but useful feature. I know about DISABLE_CONFLICTS, but I feel it would be nice to also be able to do something like, OVERRIDE_CONFLICTS="thttpd-2.* apache-2.*", and this would allow apache2 and thttpd, to be installed on the same box with out ports telling me they conflict.
I looked at bsd.port.mk and I wasn't quite sure where to begin so I am just sending this as a simple suggestion.
