My instinct is that changing the true timestamp of generated files is going to
cause other problems. I am very uneasy with a solution that means what a user
sees (in terms of timestamps) isn't going to be what actually happened.

It is also worth having a look at bug 23406. In that case timing resolutions to
the nearest second were not sufficient to resolve the issue. Any patch for this
issue should also address the issue in 23406.

My preference would be for a patch that recorded, for each JSP, somthing that is
guaranteed to change for all of the related use cases. Timestamp + file size
should be OK, MD5 certainly would be.

My general unease about changing file timestamps hasn't got to the point where I
would -1 this patch but I haven't had time to reflect on this yet.

In summary:
- I agree this is a problem
- I agree the right solution isn't going to be easy
- I think we need a more robust solution that the current patch.
