If I've understood correctly, recoding is sometimes necessary when
exchanging files with Windows. I think this may be due to the different
end-of-line sequence, in particular. And the mtime value should be kept
just as when one extracts files from an archive.

IMHO, this kind of problems can happen if you get source files with
"svn export" on Windows (the files will have the CRLF end-of-line),
then transfer the files with a USB key or CD-ROM to some Unix machine,
then fix the EOL sequence with "recode".
