Thanks, that looks quite interesting. I'll look at it.

That appears to be present in the use-commit-times option in the config
file. What I need would be one step further, a use-file-times option
which would automatically preserve the file time in a property and then
restore it on checkout, update, revert, switch, or merge.

Incidentally, why doesn't use-commit-times affect svn merge? I must be
missing something in how I understand merges, because I would expect it
to have the same effect on merge as on checkout etc.
