I am not talking about timestamps inside zips (these are usually preserved), 
but about timestamps of the transaltions files, downloadable from my website. 
HTTP doesn't provide any real way to tell "this file's has been created the 3rd 
may 2003". You won't hop it.
My server is giving you a "Last-Modified" time, which is already an optional 
HTTP header, but Firefox isn't using it to store the downloaded file anyway.
In any case, I don't think that basing anything on file's timestamp is a good 
idea. These timestamps may change / be overwrited / falsed for many reasons.

See you,
