      Description

      package { 'supervisor-rpm-that-is-old':
          name => 'supervisor',
          ensure => 'absent'
      }
       
      package { 'supervisor-from-pypi-that-is-new':
         name => 'supervisor',
         ensure => 'present',
         provider => 'pip'
      }
      

      Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on SERVER: Duplicate declaration: Package[supervisor] is already declared [
      [trimmed]
      

      Because Puppet appears to be using $name rather than $title to determine whether a resource has already been declared, it makes it impossible to do rather obvious operations without resorting to Exec.
