Does sat-solver get this right ?
Does it matter to rpm only solutions?

I can imagine any ugly way to hide self conflict to rpm:

Conflicts: packagefirst(name_of_the_package:string_used_as_a_hash)

For example:
Conflicts: packagefirst(gimp-branding:branding-openSUSE)

What is "packagefirst"? How about:

Provides: bootsplash-branding
Conflicts: otherproviders(bootsplash-branding)

Or something like that.
