No. I believe the default is that the files will get the current
date/time of the checkout. There is a configuration setting that will set
the date/time to the last commit date/time. It is possible that is the
default. The repository does not store the file last modification
date/time. You could perhaps wrapper the svn ci and svn co/up commands in
a script which set this as a file property in the repository and then
restore it to the actual file upon co. Changing the file date/time might
cause problems if this is a WC. If you are using svn export it would not
be an issue though.
