There was some discussion, I asked some or all of these questions last
time it came up. I didn't always get answers :)

So status will show some sort of "modified" indicator whenever the
filesystem timestamp and the property timestamp don't match?
Ph. Mareks code doesn't do that (as far as I know) but someone could
write such a system.

Does it show up as text modifed 'M ', property modifed ' M', or some
other timestamp modified indicator?

If the text is modified then the timestamp is probably changed, does
the timestamp modification still show up when the text modification
gets shown?

What happens if I modify the timestamp property so that it matches the
modifed filesystem timestamp. Does that show up as a property
modification? Does it also show up as a timestamp modification?

If the filesystem timestamp resolution match the timestamp property
due to resolution does that show up as a timestamp modification? Does
such a change get committed?
