Quick-read by default uses mtime to identify changes to file data. However
there are applications like rsync which explicitly set mtime making it
unreliable for the purpose of identifying change in file content. Since
ctime also changes when content of a file changes and it cannot be set
explicitly, it becomes suitable for identifying staleness of cached data.
This option makes quick-read to prefer ctime over mtime to validate its
cache. However, using ctime can result in false positives as ctime changes
with just attribute changes like permission without changes to file data.
So, use this option only when mtime is not reliable.
