Yes, that works - since the file is tiny, just trying to download it and seeing
what you get works too (not a good strategy in general, I agree). The problem
was the overwriting of the file - Richard G and other folks have pointed out
that it would be extremely dangerous in the whole internet world if that were
easy! I was in retrospect being extremely naive. What it’s done to me is to
make me reconsider the way my app works, and I’ve chosen another way of dealing
with my requirement by using local application storage. This just happens to
work in my particular case.
