Re: FC3 rpm behavior change

The FC3 Release Notes say:

=============
RPM's default behavior regarding file conflicts in Fedora Core 3 has
changed. In the past, file conflicts (where a file from one
already-installed package also appears in a package that is to be
installed) caused the installation of the package containing the
conflicting file to abort.
In Fedora Core 3, RPM will ignore such conflicts, and the package
installation will proceed, overwriting any conflicting files from
previously-installed packages.

What's the rationale for this?

RPM does NOT work like that. Apparantly it does on my system. Rather bad imho, it allows for easily
screw up.
