So, let me get this straight - you want to change the timestamp of the

First of all, why? Is there a specific reason you want to rewrite history?

I'd be concerned about what would happen if you changed the timestamps such
that an earlier revision number has a later date than a later revision
number, i.e.:

rev 1.1: January 6, 2005
rev 1.2: December 31, 2004

I suspect that might confuse CVS somewhat.
