I was complaining about date change because it was often the only
change in file after just opening/closing file without any
modifications! I remember it in .sch and *-cache.lib files. The only
thing I wanted is to save date only if file is really changed.

Fully agree with that. That's the reason why I said it's 'difficult' to
detect when the file is actually modified.

Pressing "Save" icon is a good mark. I was talking about date change without pressing "Save" icon at all (possibly because of autosave?). I fully agree, that editable date field is a great solution. Second, internal "last save timestamp" record in file can be useful also, but is not a mandatory.
