It preserves both copies - the "clean the temporary directory" step is
just skipped.

This isn't ideal since the temporary copy will be under a temporary
directory somewhere but is better than the current behaviour.  It might
be nice to move the temporary file back with an extension so that the
files are at least near each other but I don't think that's needed in
the first version of this change.
