This wouldn't help our case. We are a web design shop, creating web
sites for many different clients. Often PDFs or other content which is
supposed to appear on the web site will come directly from the client
by email. We most certainly will not be giving our clients write access
to our development repository; we'll accept the files by email and
check them in. And then we have the same problem Scott pointed out.
Commit time != modification time.
