An option along these lines sounds like it would be useful, thanks. But I have
some confusions and/or problems with the suggestion.
First, the patch doesn't alter the documentation, which is typically the hardest
part of any change like this. The documentation should give an example of how
the new option would be useful.
Second, I'm having trouble seeing how to use the option (and this is probably
because of the first item...). How does the maintainer keep track of a clamped
mtime? Isn't that a hassle to maintain? Can't 'tar' do this for you, instead
of your having to do it?
