Well, using utime I can't write to the ctime in the inode, only atime and
mtime. I think st_ctime is changed any time the file is changed, but looking
at the FreeBSD chmod very quickly, I didn't see any times being modified
(altho I didn't look to hard).
Looking at sys/stat.h, it doesn't even seem like a 'creation' time of sorts
if even stored. I thumbed thru what mono did, and it seems like they don't
attempt to set the created time either.
