The usual idiom would be to use a more complex globbing expression,
perhaps like so:

CONFLICTS=3D	trytond-2.[012356789].*

However clearly this won't account for all possible future versions.
The thing you have to ask yourself is 'will the upstream be releasing
new version series so frequently that I need to add code to all the
tryton ports to account for it?'  It may well be the case that updating
the CONFLICTS setting in all the ports for the different streams
whenerver a new stream is released really is the most effective solution.=
