I think you need to clarify what you mean by "integrate" here. When
you do an update, you have to deal with three time stamps:
 * the file's mtime from the latest local modification by the user
 * the local file's MTIME_RECORD from the original checkout/commit
 * the new repository MTIME_RECORD of the update.
All three can be different.
Who wins?

I write this assuming that "mtime" is the local file's modification
time (time stamp). If not, you should add a short definition to your
proposal. Not every reader might be familiar with internal unix data
structures or developer slang (where ever that word comes from).
