RE: schema timestamps

Interesting idea, but at least in Unix there is no createtime in the
filesystem. The three standard timestamps for a ufs filesystem are
accesstime, modtime, and inode changetime. The inode changetime is updated
whenever modtime is updated, and also when permissions are changed.
