If the timestamps are different, they're different.  After all, why
stop at one second?  The MS-DOS FAT filesystem has a two-second
granularity and I don't hear people clamouring to have a feature where
the time values for tools are computed &(~1).

I understand what you're asking but you've not convinced me it's
useful.  However, that's not to say that I could *never* be convinced.
