Historically, "exactly the same time on source and generated" has had
indeterminate effect in various makes. I don't know if that's still an
issue--it started to pass away when one second (granularity of
filesystem timestamps) started to be "a really long time."

In any case, I don't see how using the commit timsestamp addresses the
interleaved operation problem.
