Tim Rühsen created an issue: https://gitlab.com/gnuwget/wget2/issues/489

Mentioned in wget matrix channel. It could be accidentally lead to overwriting 
`.bashrc` (if `-nc/--no-clobber` is given) or to download a file like 
`.bash_aliases` (if it doesn't exist) which is then sourced by `.bashrc`. 
`Sourcing` could change $PATH and/or could lead to executing downloaded files 
on the next login.

Should we protect the user against shooting itself into the foot ?
