Because it would be non-zero implementation cost for Portage, so
probably out of question for EAPI 3. And it's not at all clear if the
solution is inferior. Since half a year, nobody cared to answer the
question of comment 25 of mentioned bug.

But if you want, the council can also vote if it should be option
A (current Portage and Pkgcore behaviour, all mtimes are preserved),
B (optional update of "old" mtimes), or C (mandatory update).

@betelgeuse: Could you please add this to the agenda, too?

This is outside the scope of this proposal, and (at least for now) I'm
not going to work anything out.
