[TYPO3-core] FileUpload conflict handling

The current drag&drop upload feature in back-end works realy well. But
there 2 issues that need some love.

1) The confirm box with the question "override existing files"
The problem is that it is not that user friendly.
I already created in issue for the UX team and Jens is working on proposal.

2) Uploading existing files
When a file with an existing filename is uploaded and conflict mode isn't
set to override, I think the system should check if the content of the old
and new file are the same (compare there hashes).  When they are the same
the system should handle the upload as succesfull (maybe with a different
log message in system log then a normal succesfull upload). From the
editors pov I think this would be a great improvement.  Especially for the
DocModule file upload.

What's your opinion about this?
