I don't want to put words in Antonio's mouth, but what he pointed out
seems to me to be this:

- sftp strips the low-order bits from timestamps.
- This is arguably a bug.
- It's fixable with a small patch.
- The fix is both backwards-compatible and standards-compatible.
- He'd be willing to implement it.

I think his analysis is correct.

The ensuing discussion about backups, file servers, tunnels etc. is
hardly relevant.
