patch ping: folder and file dates on copy

Just wanted to ping that there are two open bugs that cover slightly different aspects of keeping folder and file dates when making copies:
(contains a patch, doesn't seem to have been reviewed)
(incomplete: implementation only addressed file dates, and only on local file systems)

This is a big "quality of life" regression - not critical, but keeping dates for copies made tracking remote shares (e.g. Web sites) and archives (local and remote) much easier, nicer.

In pre-gvfs days, I only needed Nautilus. Now I need to resort to the command line on a regular basis for exactly the thing that Nautilus should be able to do: file management. I hope you'll bring the polish back to folder and file copies.
