The way Linux software packaging seems to handle this is to have a "Provides" concept.
So you could have:
oxp.author.shipset.addition (provides oxp.author.shipset)
oxp.author.shipset.replace (provides oxp.author.shipset)
oxp.author.extraships (depends on oxp.author.shipset)

This wouldn't be that difficult to code in, I think. The question is "if you install the extraships set on its own, which of addition and replace gets installed automatically if you ask Oolite to install dependencies for you?". I'm currently leaning towards "pick one arbitrarily" for this.

Instead, how about, "ask the person what they want to do"?

List all choices, setting one as the default (often the first listed one is used as default choice)

Here's a method to pass the ownership from one caretaker (CT) to another without bothering cim.

1. The new CT uploads a new version of the OXP into the manager using the same identifier as the old version. At this point there will be two versions of the OXP available.
2. The old CT takes down the old version from the manager.
3. Transfer complete.
