I don't truely understand the issue, probes are named by the filename of the script, so there is no way to have 2 probes with the same name fighting to change the value.

Current behaviour:

>>> probeData = {}
>>> probeData['host1'] = { 'probe1' : 'result1' }
>>> probeData
{'host1': {'probe1': 'result1'}}
>>> probeData['host1'] = { 'probe2' : 'result2' }
>>> probeData
{'host1': {'probe2': 'result2'}}

Expected behvaiour (at least for me):

>>> probeData = {}
>>> probeData['host1'] = { 'probe1' : 'result1' }
>>> probeData
{'host1': {'probe1': 'result1'}}
>>> probeData['host1'].update( { 'probe2' : 'result2' } )
>>> probeData
{'host1': {'probe1': 'result1', 'probe2': 'result2'}}
