I'm pretty sure chances are much higher that you get the data correctly if you reuse the settings and only change the filename, than reading the file as if it were completely new.

I'm going to pull an AOL style¹ "me too".  Since 95% of the time people
are going to be using the same type of datasource the settings should be
reused if possible.  Obviously if it's different we can't.
