CVS can do this (cvs ci -f), so that is a fairly powerful argument for it,
given svn's target audience.

Pedro: Timestamps are a property of revisions, not files.

Therefore an appropriate user interface would be:

svn commit --force-<something> file-to-commit

Where the behaviour of the new flag is to bypass discarding of items to be
committed if they are unchanged.

An entry in issuezilla would be a good idea, so this isn't forgotten.
