Subversion "last modified" date of updated files

When getting updated files using the Subversion plug-in, the last modified date seems to the last modified date of the file in the repository. This is semantically correct, but can be tedious in development environments when automated builds don't pick up on changes.

It's be nice to have an option on the plugin to be able to choose last modified date from date in repository or the date/time of retrieval.

Is this feasible?

The subversion command line client will do the same thing, so IDEA is right here. Also, subversion (and IDEA) uses file timestamps to detect local modifications, so an option like this would probably lead to subversion saying that files are modified when they're not.
