I don't know, but following the instructions from David to create
download URL for GitHub makes this a non-issue, see below.

It does in a way that it explains how to construct GitHub download URL
so that its last component would be the same as the filename in
Content-Disposition header.  That way it doesn't matter if HTTP user
agent (be it web browser or wget, curl, etc) uses the last component of
URL or Content-Disposition to name the file, it will be the same in all
