This is to account for the case that snapshots are taken at a rate
higher than 1 per second. It assures that not snap will be lost due to
fast snap rate or even (but less possible) for filenames that already
exists ...

I considered it an issue and i would implement it that way. If you
don't i won't pose another veto, though...
