support SharePoint file copy with "add as new version to existing files"

When using the "replace" option in this activity, it would be great to be able to increment the file version when a file of the same name already exists.

Status: New
Level: Powered On

This looks more critical than I previously thought because the file ID changes each time, which means you can't have a stable way to link to the resulting file following each copy operation.


Is it even technically possible to preserve the file ID for a file being replaced by a different file of the same name? I think so because this seems to be an option during file upload using the normal manual process.
