Yes, they do.  And do you know what?  Some computers are used by more
than one person, with DIFFERENT software.

install BOTH, xfce4-terminal AND the gnustep terminal.

Again, please explain me, why you need to conflict with that package,
when it is perfectly possible to have both packages installed, and even
run both terminals at the same time?
