Comment #8 on issue 34 by robe.... at cityofboston.gov: .prj creation by  

Just noticed I left some conditions that I no longer need since the  
coalesce will
always return a record except on fatal error where table does not exist or  
is lost.  I'll take those out later.

Still thinking about Mark's comment about just outputting the .prj  
regardless.  I'll
leave like that for now, but still have some reservations.  Unlike the  
tables and shp
that rightfully do get overwritten, a .prj file is valid for a table query  
even from
previous dumps.  I'll have to reinstall my ArcGIS and play with that.

My concern is if you store your data in a certain projection which is  
equivalent to
another registered in say ArcGIS or mapinfo, but yours isn't.  You may  
create a .prj to make <stuff your favorite yuck product here> happy and not  
want the
.prj overwritten though you always want the latest data overritten.
