So, a while back I mentioned that I'd done tweaked versions of 'cp', 'mv',
'chmod' etc for V6 which retained the original modified date of a file (when
the actual contents were not changed). I had some requests for those versions,
which I have finally got around to checking and uploading (along with 'mvall',
which for some reason V6 didn't have). I've added them to a couple of my V6

Note (per the page) that the latter group all require the smdate() system
call, which was commented out in 'vanilla' V6 (because using it confused the
backup system); the page gives instructions on how to turn it back on.
