Search their mailing list, and I think there's even an issue filed for this.

yes.

Not so much. If it were that trivial, the Subversion team would have
done this a long time ago.
There was a discussion to do that with every 'svn st', but 'svn st' does
_not_ lock the working copy during operation, but adjusting the
timestamps would need such a lock.
