If you see any sort of evidence that this would hold true I really like
The current build system is only known to fail if a changed file gets a
timestamp that is not equal to 'now'. Some braindead SCM uses the
timestamp of the chekin.
There has been put a tremendous effort in tracking each and every subtle
dependeny - and if something is missing then it ought to be fixed.
