In my opinion, setting the file timestamp to the commit time (or
any other time other than the time of checkout) tends to screw
you up more than help you.

Suppose you have the latest checked out in your working tree,
you build and test, and find regressions.  You'd want to check
out from an older commit, rebuild and make sure things used to
work correctly.  If the checkout used the timestamp of the older
commit, however, all the things you built from the latest would
have timestamps newer than the source, so you would end up
always having to run "make clean" before rebuilding.
