I think you're right if you're talking about two people working on the
same file. I think Patrick was talking about this case:

        I check out a file at 9:00
        At 9:15 someone else modifies it
        At 9:20 they commit the mod
        At 9:30 I do a build
        At 9:45 I do an svn up
        I do another build

At this point if the modified file has a 9:45 timestamp (time of the
update) my make will notice it. If it is 9:15 (time of modification)
or 9:20 (time of commit) my make will not notice it. In this scenario
you want to know when the changed version "arrived" on the local
machine, not when it was changed.
