Timestamp Issues

From: <trlists_at_clayst.com>

I'm confused about timestamps ... it appears from the following
sentence:

    Normally your working copy files have timestamps that reflect the
    last time they were touched by any process, whether that be your
    own editor or by some svn subcommand.

that svn might be setting timestamps on checkout to the time of
checkout. Is that right? I have two branch directories that appear to
reflect this, or perhaps to reflect the time the directory was renamed.

What I want is for the file system timestamp to reflect the time I
changed the file with the editor, not the time it was checked in or
out, or when the directory it's in was renamed. In other words, when I
check out a file I want it to have the same filesystem timestamp it had
when I committed that revision. Can I do this with Subversion? I
would have expected it to be the default, yet the branch directories I
created seem to suggest otherwise.

Thanks for any info,
