RE: Copy+editfiles

Won't editfiles change the mtime of the destination, this causing CFE to
recopy the source over again? Or, does CFE not recopy if the destination
is 'newer' then the source?

The file will not be recopied on every run if you use copy by mtime, 
only when the source file is modified. So it will only be momentarily
wrong on the first run.
