use-commit-times is only used by the client to set the timestamp of
checked-out/updated files.

To modify the commit time in the repository, you essentially have to
modify the history of your repository, changing the timestamp on
selected revisions (you aren't changing the times on the *files*, but
changing the record of when the *revision* was committed). At best,
this will be confusing when reading logs; at worst, it'll really mess
up your history, especially if you have other commits where you aren't
messing around with timestamps.
