Absolutely not!  CVS should never change the timestamp of anything
except a newly-created file (not counting the natural setting of the
timestamp to the current time when a file is modified).  Otherwise,
things like make won't work correctly.  If anything, it should change
the Entries file to match the timestamp (which is what update does).
