First, the patch doesn't alter the documentation, which is typically the hardest part of any change like this. The documentation should give an example of how the new option would be useful.
Second, I'm having trouble seeing how to use the option (and this is probably because of the first item...). How does the maintainer keep track of a clamped mtime? Isn't that a hassle to maintain? Can't 'tar' do this for you, instead of your having to do it?
