I would lobby against this being the default template, as these time
stamps really mess up the ability to merge org files from multiple
branches without conflicts.
A ------- B ------- D
At the merge, D would have a conflict to resolve by hand.
I used timestamps and the save hook mentioned above for a while and
ended up needing to do unnecessary (and in the context of a rev
control like GIT - non-useful) manual conflict resolution, so have
since removed them from every file I had previously added them to.
Just my $0.02.
