No - consider this if mtime was classified as a change:

A user checks in file foo with modification time x

Another user does a checkout - but decides that ther want to have the
current time as the modified datetime.

The user makes no changes.

This user does a checkin - file foo will be classified as having changed
and will have the time of the checkout as its modified datetime.

Thus for compatibility it should not consider only mtime being changed
as a change.
