Looking at wget(1), I'm a little surprised that the selected options
appear to avoid clobbering files whose names conflict.  I would have
expected that we'd want to overwrite them, to get the fresher version.
But the existing wget invocation does the same thing, so maybe it's

clobbering is implicitly disabled with the -nd option:

           Do not create a hierarchy of directories when retrieving
           recursively.  With this option turned on, all files will
           get saved to the current directory, without clobbering (if
           a name shows up more than once, the filenames will get
           extensions .n).

Have a nice day,
