Would it be possible to add an (optional) mode to the '-stl' switch (the timestamp 'preserver') which allows to '-ignore_directory/folder_timestamps'?

Rationale: Packaging build processes frequently require to delete complete folder structures while re-creating the package; very likely without any changes found on the underlying file content.
Yet, the stl switch picks the newly created folder timestamps, which might undermine its original effort.
