Follow-up Comment #1, bug #54825 (project wget):

I kind of agree here. Over time Wget has had the --no-clobber option do many
things and trying to preserve backwards compatibility has only complicated
everything. It would be ideal to have a --force option which causes Wget to
overwrite the file. You can currently do that by explicitly specifying the
filename using -O.

However, all new features are currently being added only to Wget2. Which is
the next version of Wget, with (almost) complete command-line parity. However,
we are indeed making some backwards incompatible modification which allow
making changes as you've proposed a lot easier. Please take a look at the
source available here: https://www.gitlab.com/gnuwget/wget2.git. It is also
available on Savannah and has been packaged for Debian already.
