    initial v1  
    11I guess that it depends on the driver. I think that user friendly and safe behavior would be to create a table straight ahead with -nln if table does not exist and throw an error if it does exist, with a hint to use explicitly either -append or -overwrite. Of course the default must not be -overwrite. Some drivers support also truncate, like PostGIS driver through a config option. Might be useful in Carto driver as well.

     3Actually it seems that in this case the default comes from the layer creation option "OVERWRITE" of the Carto driver http://www.gdal.org/drv_carto.html.
