Possible bug? Extra data files disappear upon merging

Bug Description

Calibre 6.16

Thankfully, I did this in a test library first!

1. Add two books to a library.
2. Add an extra data file to the second book.
3. Merge it into the first book.

Expected results: The extra files to be copied, or at least a warning.

Actual results: The extra files disappeared. Restoring the book from deletion put it back.

Addition: Filename collisions are a possibility. If able to detect, warn the user (so they can rename) or auto-rename. If unable to detect, perhaps a warning prompt "if there are collisions, you may lose files" when merging books that all have data files.

Thanks in advance!
