The point is not whether subversion restores the timestamp, but whether
it makes its stored timestamp (in .svn/entries?) match the stamp on the
file itself.

Generally you don't want revert to restore the stamp on the file itself,
because that would prevent 'make' from rebuilding the object from a
reverted source file.

This is issue 791 in the SVN issue tracker - still marked as NEW :-(
