IIRC, in earlier versions of Tramp file copying did not go via a buffer.

I don't know why that has been changed, but it has a bad consequence: The keep-date flag does not work anymore. I use Tramp every day to synchronize files on different machines, a synchronization based on time stamps. Therefore I have to use an old version of Tramp.

So if someone is looking into tramp-do-copy-or-rename-via-buffer, please consider making keep-date work.
BTW, using touch, will that work on Windows machines?

Anyway, why copy via a buffer and not directly?
