You're right, I was slightly confused as to the intention of the issue. But if 
I get this right, the issue is about what the default should be when 
downloading a file when the same filename already exists locally? And I still 
maintain that overwriting it is not the right approach. At least not by 
default. The user may request that it be overwritten, and we should honour that.

About the use of brackets and whitespaces, I agree with you. Which is why I 
think, on *nix systems, it should be, "filename.ext.1" and on Windows / VMS 
systems it is "filename_1.ext"
