Note: Saint Xavier has already written a fix for this, so it's not actually a question of whether it's worth the bother, just whether it's actually desired behavior.
Since it's desired in some situations but maybe not in others, the best solution would be to provide a switch for it that can be used in a user's .wgetrc and on the command line.
Now we only need to find out what's the desired default behaviour if the switch is missing. ;-)
