I have a question related to this:

On several systems I work on, we have work partitions that are periodically
pruned of files that haven't been accessed in the last week or two.

When I do a fresh cvs checkout, my files have both access and mod time set to
the filestamp in the repository.  Unfortunately, if the pruning job spots
those before I've had a chance to 'touch -a' them, they get removed.

Is it possible to tell cvs checkout/update to preserve the mod time of the
repository file but update the access time?
