Description

Hi,

Let's consider a single, non multi-instanciable technique, to set the console keyboard layout (KEYMAP=xy in /etc/vconsole.conf).
Create two directives from this technique, one to set a US layout, the second on to set a Bosnian layout (see attached picture). They are supposed to be applied to different groups, of course. But, if the associated rules target by mistake an intersecting group of nodes (e.g. a node is in both groups), the global report for these nodes become non-informative.

When two rules (from the same non multi-instantiable technique) are applied to the same node, the rule with the lowest priority will not be generated for the node, and so will be stuck as "Applying"/"No report" in reporting. And this is the "worst result", so the global reporting for this node will show up as "No report", even if everything else worked.

Wouldn't it be possible to create an "Overridden" status for that, which doesn't count in the global status, but can be useful for the admin to detect any unwanted conflict?
