Think of it this way: when you're not using version control at all, a
file's timestamp indicates the last time the file changed in the
filesystem. When you import a tree into a subversion repository,
you've moved the project into a "new filesystem". The
"use-commit-times" option will make your working copy timestamps
reflect the mod-time of each file in *svn* filesystem.
