--- Comment #1 from Kevin Korb <rsync at sanitarium.net> ---
This would not actually be very helpful.  Going between a *nix style timestamp
and a FAT one has other issues.  Especially if your TZ changes or you are in a
TZ where the clock changes twice per year.  Your modify windows will need to be
2 + (number of hours difference * 3600) which is kind of an unsafe thing to do.
 FAT just isn't capable of keeping proper timestamps.
