saving time stamps of files with subversion 1.1.1

Hello everybody,

here's an updated patch for subversion 1.1.1 which allows subversion to save
and restore the file's modification time.

This was previously documented in issue 1256
 http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1256

- What this patch *should* do

On an import/commit, if a file has the "svn:text-time"-property set (to _any_
value), it gets the file's current mtime set in this property, as a
svn-timestring (yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss.uuuuuuZ).
On update/checkout/export, if a file has this property set *and* the
configuration "use-commit-times" is set, the file's specific property
overrides the commit-date.

- Beware!

This is just a test-patch. I believe it does what I tell above, but may have
bugs!
It surely is ugly - that is partly because I'm not really familiar with the
subversion code base, and partly (as other developers say) because the
libsvn_wc code is ugly, too :-)

I've included some people who expressed interest on this feature as a bcc: - I
hope that's ok.

Please give me comments - better patches etc. welcome.

Regards,

Phil
