I suspect he means it should be taught to ignore things like
"@conflicts" if it does not recognize it.

Noble idea, but we can't apply such a change retroactively.  The
best way to solve pkg_info conflicts is to force a newer version
on them through sysutils/pkg_install.  Unfortunately that hasn't
been implemented yet, although it is trivial to do.
