[Bioc-devel] Duplicated method names in purrr and GenomicRanges

On this topic, one way of staying abreast of conflicts as you introduce them during the evolution of a project through use of the `conflicted` library toward the top of your project, usage modelled as follows:
## Force use of package prefixes for ALL conflicting function names
## lacking registered "preferences":
conflict_prefer("select", "AnnotationDbi", "MASS")
conflict_prefer("which", "BiocGenerics", "Matrix")
conflict_prefer("list", "base", "gsubfn")
I've recently found this quite useful, but welcome arguments for/against this approach.
