as per documentation, adding ! allows you to overwrite previously defined command. Without it, you'll get an error if a command with specified name already exists.

If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here is acceptable, but this is not a perfect place for them.
