Let's say it's part of the change in cache management, now we cache the
module descriptor exactly as downloaded, before storing it in ivy format
(when you use a pom the difference is more obvious).

The problem is that people may not use the [artifact] token in ivy cache
pattern, and since we use this token to make the difference between the
original file and the converted one, we could run into name collisions in
this case. But maybe using the artifact token is not a good idea, maybe we
should try to append a suffix to the ivy file path instead (like .original).
Please open an issue about this problem, and we'll see what's the best
option to solve the problem considering what I just said.
