The problem with that is obviously the initial import: If I'm
importing a project that's been developed without version control
over the past two years, I don't suddenly want all of the files in
the project to have today's (or any other) modification date. I want
each file to remember the date on which that file was modified. As
has been explained by others, this is useful information.
