points of view

I can see how this could be useful, but personally, I'd file this one under "bug" rather than "feature". To my mind, file-renaming by the OS during a copy should be consistent, regardless of which way the copy command was initiated. It's particularly strange to have it work the same way in 2 out of 3 methods, and a different way in the 3rd method. To my mind, the behavior should be consistently predictable from the point of view of the "uninitiated user".
