At this point you cannot install a package depending on `python-hid` and then another package requiring `python-hidapi` due to a conflict. While it is possible to adjust a program to support both implementations user is still forced to choose between the two. I suggest there is a `provides` array added to both packages for cases when program is compatible with both modules.

Additional info:
* `python-hid` (community)
* `python-hidapi` (community)
