for now, it probably wouldn't hurt. ;)  all issue attachments are  
stuffed into a single directory.  the code is supposed to gracefully  
recover from collisions and automatically rename files, but i haven't  
looked closely at that code and can't vouch for its correctness.  the  
whole way in which project_issue.module (recently split off from  
project.module) handles file attachments is old, crusty, and  
partially broken.  it's all going to change once issue followups are  
real comments (http://drupal.org/node/18920).  however, until then,  
using unique names will probably help ensure there's no confusion...
