i played a little with the options and found out that wget indeed uses
the original filename to see if the file is newer than the remote file
but saves it then to the output file.
wget -N -O test.gif http://kos.li/images/kos.li.gif
if there is NO local kos.li.gif then the file is always downloaded, but
saved as test.gif.
if there IS a local kos.li.gif then the timestamp is compared with this
local copy, but the file thats being downloaded is saved as test.gif.
i think this is a bug?
