Can we add a way to detect "this is not the same divecomputer" (different sample rate for example) and instead of overwriting the existing divecomputer data add a new one?

Well, it's the GUI part that is painful.

Once we have the "edit dive computer nickname" GUI, I guess we could
just add a check-box to allow editing the entry that has no model
information, and then we'd use the nickname for the model entry. But
otherwise we'd have to create a whole new made-up GUI for this. And I
sooo looove doing one-off gtk things..
