This isn't going to fix the recently posted case of accidentally letting
a recursive tool make the same edit to the working copy and its
supposed-to-be pristine counterpart. You probably can't fix that case
short of a major change to allow the pristine copies to be offset in a
parallel directory structure, but it would be nice to stop and make the
problem very obvious if you notice any mtime's newer on the pristine
copies than they should be - at least if you have anything to indicate
what they should be.
