That is a key question.  I wish I knew the answer :)  Rob, what is
your use case by the way?  Not that it is the answer for everybody,
but I'm curious.

The change-one-time per call handles your issues nicely.  It might be
nice to have a flag that says to just set everything to the one time
so that we don't waste a syscall trying to preserve the times we don't
think we're supposed to modify.
