Re: TIMESTAMPS

I would really like to see it preserve file timestamps, but equally I can see how that could play havoc with reliable conditional compilation unless there is something smart that would tell the compiler/make utility what had *changed* on a remote machine even if that newer timestamp is prior to the related object code created from the old source, etc, on your own machine.

Tricky...
