There can be archives with duplicate media file names in sub-folders too, plus it makes no sense to think only of media file archives when adding the feature. Are people supposed to remember to turn on flat extraction only when they're downloading media file archives, and then turn it off for other archives?

IMO auto-rename should be the default for max. safety, so that even if delete archives after extraction is selected no files with the same names will be lost. Those users who don't care and want to live dangerously can change the setting to overwrite or skip and enjoy. Best of both worlds, and no-one can complain that they lost files because JD didn't provide an auto-rename option.
