I would like to know if there are any plans to introduce a creation 
timestamp in future ext3/4 versions. Having a 4th timestamp saving the 
creation time would be very good for projekts like Samba for example. 
It would be important that creation time can also be set manually 
later on by some system call. Systems like FreeBSD's UFS and Solais' 
ZFS already support creation times. Unfortunately Linux doesn't have 
such a thing standarized anywhere but it would be geat if it would.

Are there any plans to add this?
