Hi all,
i have already posted on emacs-dev, and i had no answer, so i assume
there is no good reason to use the more recent file of the marked files
as reference timestamp for all the marked files.

This actual behavior doesn't fit with what the manual describe nor with
the default behavior of shell command touch.

This actual behavior seem to be more like the shell command touch does
with the "-r" option that take a reference file as argument to set a

Maybe this approach is better: 
if the emacs touch command is "touch -r",
use as default input the more recent file (what will be the same as what
is used actually), otherwise, if the touch command is set
to "touch" without args, use current-time as default timestamp.

Even better would be a variable to handle touch command and one to
handle args.
