Why not wait until the source member needs to be changed for some other
I'm assuming there's a good reason, I'm just curious to know what it is.
The only thing I can think of is that there's some utility that crawls
through the source analyzing changes - if not, ignore the rest of this.
If so, shouldn't the utility just handle both the old and new format? If
it can't, then some pre-process could do whatever transformation is
being done on the source now, but into temporary members.
I agree with Chuck - faking out the last change date on the file could
have unforeseen consequences, and if you are unlucky, you wouldn't find
out about them until long after the badness happened.
Rule to live by: There's always another way.
