Not some sort of "modified" - just plain modified. Just as if you had indeed
modified the contents too. Generally speaking that is the current behavior.
If you modify the filesystem timestamp, it'll show up as modified until you
try to commit, at which time it'll decide there was no "real" change. The
proposed design would consider a timestamp change a "real" change all on
its own.

I'd say "text modified 'M'"".

It's all part of one single "changed state". There should be no fundamental
difference between the two.

From my point of view, a modification of the timestamp propery is equivalent
to patching the text in the repository - i.e. a manual change outside of the
normal workings of the system. The effect would depend on in which direction
the change was made, i.e. back or forward in time.

If Subversion cannot see the difference, there is effectively no difference.
No change is seen, no change is there to be committed.
