If you install the same files in the same place, you need a conflict,
anyway, or dpkg will bark at you.  Otherwise, I think it should be
possible - and we should really try to actually make it possible with
the packages - to use lmodern.sty from the lmodern package with
texlive.  I guess lmodern will often be more recent, which is important
for a font in development.  As for "same place", lmodern can be the
first to use TEXMFSITE (which does not yet exist).
