Well, I don't see why I'd want to --- ever. After all, my Unix box already
stamps the time and date that I edited the thing, plasters my userid on it,
plus has permissions associated with it to show who can edit it. The server
should be able to generate that (I know that my server already does a stat on
the file before sending).
