Kleopatra: Allow users to change name of decryption result if file (or folder) already exists
Testing, NormalPublic


Noticed that saving after decryption is different from saving after encryption (T6372), where we now offer to rename the output file.
After decryption its still only overwrite or abort:

This should be changed to the behavior we already have for saving encryption results.

This is related to T6373. If T6373 is fixed, then we should get KIO's standard file conflict resolution dialog automatically. On Linux, you should already get the dialog which allows renaming the output file.

For existing files it does now do the same as when encrypting. Folders were already renamed automatically to avoid overwriting. This hasn't been changed.

Possible follow-up: Optionally, use automatic renaming also for files. We do it already for folders, so that there doesn't seem to be a reason not to do this also for files. This would save the users some clicks.
