[Gluster-devel] Should Gluster use nanoseconds instead of microseconds for [am]time?

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1422074 was opened to support nanoseconds on
Gluster Volumes. Is anyone aware of problems when we do this?

This would help where applications (like backup systems) check for the
difference between timestamps on original (nanosecond precision) and
Gluster Volumes (microseconds rounded down). Because the original would
always be newer than the copy on the Gluster Volume, incremental backups
become full backups again (using 'rsync' and 'cp -u' as examples).

Please leave your conserns or recommendation in the bug or reply this
this email.
