Why?

Don't answer that. :-) I think this is probably one of those religious
things. I suspect that it comes from working w/o a version control
system, and mod times are the only way you have of tracking such things.
But they're so damn unreliable. Once I got used to having a VCS, I
completely lost interest in filesystem timestamps - the VCS provides
much more useful info.

All IMHO, YMMV, etc. etc. etc.
