Well, it would be good to discuss this a bit beforehand, since my time
is wasted if there's no chance to get it accepted. Perhaps there is
some counterargument I don't know about.
Is there some existing code that could be used? I think I read
somewhere that git once did preserve mtimes, but that this code was
removed because of the build tool issues. Perhaps that code could
simply be put back in, and surrounded by conditions.
PS: Given the opportunity, I want to thank you very much for
maintaining the git repository for my cvsclone tool.
