You need (or someone needs) to write a precise description of the required
semantics of the feature - that is, what it does but not how it does it. The
description must say what happens to the time stamp in all circumstances -
including during "revert", during a WC-to-WC copy, etc.

After we agree on the semantics that we want, then we will be able to review a
patch (such as the one that P. Marek has attached to the issue) and decide
whether it implements those semantics correctly.

I have looked at that patch but I am unable to say whether it is good because I
don't know what we want it to do. This may sound harsh but it is fair. We
would need a description of the feature for the book anyway.
