[OHM] Are files with the same names overwritten?

I have at least two addons with the same zip file names, for instance:
Are they stored internally under different paths or did I overwrite the older file with the newer one?

I can answer that before migration from Dbeachy1's to Xyon's storage server they were saved in the same directory using the original file name, so also they needed to use unique names. I'm not sure it is the same currently, but if the code hasn't changed but only the location they are stored, it's still the same.

Well, the code for this hasn't been changed, so I would say yes, based on orb's assertion above.

It actually would be so trivial to patch it that I might just fix that.

If it's a quickie... I don't know how many devs will provide multiple versions of the same addons, but if there are such, this will save confusion.
