This is not natural for me.
Thanks to Andreas for pointing out that it's a Microsoft thing. I'm a
Windows developer and don't know what other OSes do.

As a Windows user, I know exactly which operations will trash a file's
last-mod date, so I navigate around them. It's as natural as
breathing. Sending a file (even one) as an attachment to an email or
uploading to an FTP server? Whack it in a Zip file.

I think that SVN would feel more natural to us Windows people if it had
the option to honour the Windows file system's semantic contract for
last-modified dates.
