saves having to call time() for each -M, -A, or -C (in addition to making the results equal for different files with the same timestamp).
I'm not quite sure I follow that. If they just returned the timestamp from the files as absolute values, you wouldn't have to call time() at all? And the results of different files with the same timestamps would be the same anyway?
