How to retain original filename?

I would like Calibre to use the same filename for a book that I originally gave it

name - series series series_index - title - version
for instance:
Waggoner, Tim - [Nekropolis 03] - Dark War (v5.0).epub

Any thoughts on how this can be done?

You don't.
Calibre will handle files the way it see fit, rather than how the user wants it.

And i forgot, it's forbidden to make proposals to change that, or even speak about it

Internally... No way (read the sticky on Library structre)

you can use a save to disk or send to template to save files externally (you will need a 'Version' custom column).
