On the contrary, pushing the change into gnulib will make testing easier:
If you provide a unit test, I can do "./gnulib-tool --create-testdir ..."
and test it on the mingw machine I have access to; other people here on
this list have access to Cygwin, Solaris and other machines.

A unit test can basically do the following:
   echo > stamp1
   sleep 2
   echo > testfile
   sleep 2
   echo > stamp2
   sleep 2
   mv testfile renamed
   sleep 2
   echo > stamp3
and then verify that
   mtime(stamp1) < birthtime(renamed) < mtime(stamp2) < ctime(renamed) <
