remove time-stamps to make files more VCS friendly



I have been using git to version control my KiCad projects. On the
whole it works really well.

One source of constant annoyance though, is that KiCad will put the
time-stamps into files when saving, even if nothing else has changed.
It's not just that it makes it harder to see if anything has actually
changed, its also just redundant info when everything is under a VCS.
Unfortunately git is unable to ignore just a specific line.

I wanted to ask what these time-stamps are used for and tentatively
suggest adding an option to remove them.
