I'm not so sure this option would make a lot of sense.  An option not

Actually, the aforementioned backup scenario implies to me that setting
the timestamp makes more sense.  Restoring a broken Cygwin installation
from a backup and then immediately getting rebase problems again, just
because an incremental backup didn't catch the rebased DLLs sounds pretty
frustrating.  OTOH, who's doing incremental backup these days?


I am. I don't feel like buying a new hard drive or a new disk server every month
or so in order to preserve all my backups as long as I often need them - some
problems simply aren't obvious for a few months.
