That isn't a solution to the problem, because it doesn't solve
anything, it just throws the problem back on the user. The problem
already is on the user, now, all you're doing is adding a bunch of
extra code which will let you put a prettier face on failure.

A true solution would let both plugins not conflict with each other in
the first place.
