I cooked up a couple of 4NT batch files which will set and get a
"timestamp" property and do the right thing with it, using the output
from svn list -R as a base. This is slow as it runs against all files,
it would need to parse output from svnlook and have some more
intelligence to be useful, but the concept does work.

If I were to do it I think the best thing to do would be to write
custom scripts to invoke svn that would see if the command in question
could modify the repository or retrieve something from it, then use
svnlook to see what was changed and go from there. I think I could
also set the property in a pre-commit hook script, but I'd still have
to write a custom interface to at least checkout and update to read the
property and set the timestamp.

It's definitely doable, but not what I'd call simple!
