saving time stamps of files

One of the main reasons I went to subversion
(from CVS) was that it promises to keep the
timestamps of the files.

I already voted for issue #1246
but I'm afraid that post-1.0 is a bit late :-)

Now I found the discussion on
and I'd like to propose a solution:

- the modification time of files is archived as a property, eg. svn:mtime
- it is used on checkout
- on update the newer of current and archived is taken
- if the property is set to "current", the current time is always taken,
  and the property doesn't get changed on commit.

When will that be finished? :-)

I'll be trying 0.22 now, as I had some problems with the
older revisions (issues 1284 and 1288).
