Comment(by warner):

 good points!

 In a few places ('tahoe cp', and the recently-added 'tahoe backup'
 command), the mtime/ctime values are meant to be copied directly from the
 original filesystem, in which case the semantics are the same, so the
 metadata key names ought to be the same.

 But the code in dirnode.py which adds new "mtime"/"ctime" metadata keys
 (using the "tahoe semantics" described above) ought to use different names
 for the keys it creates.
