Argh, had this on my todo list but forgot ...

I really don't see why you'd want to avoid a wc conversion for the
timestamps in particular. We already know we'll have to convert when the
private URLs change from using node ids to using rev/path, so we might
as well do both changes at the same time. The "always use HEAD" motto of
the pre-Alpha stage should hold for working copies, too.
