I agree that we need to hash out what, exactly, the values mean, but I
don't think that's a terribly difficult thing to do.

If it's stored in the database catalogs, this is clear- it's replicated
just like the catalog, and then you don't have to worry about trying to
ensure that the file creation timestamp in the filesystem is right...
