[Nmh-workers] More garbage collection: conflict(8)

Do people actually use conflict(8) anymore?  From the man page:

       Conflict  also checks for maildrops in /var/mail which do not belong to
       a valid user.  It assumes that no user name will start  with  ‘.’,  
       thus  ignores  files in /var/mail which begin with ‘.’.  It also 
       for entries in the group(5) file which do not belong to a  valid  user,
       and for users who do not have a valid group number.  In addition dupli‐
       cate users and groups are noted.

I'm thinking that this hasn't been useful for at least a decade, and probably
longer.  Can we get rid of it?
