Pipelines cache does not retain original file modification time


When extracting files from cache, the modification time equals the time of extraction instead of the original modification time of the file.

This is a problem for Rust since Cargo checks the staleness of some of its dependencies according to mtime. As a result, multiple dependencies are rebuilt for every pipeline. I've set up a basic Rust repository displaying this problem here.

A simple fix is to tarball the cached contents and then cache the tarball through Pipelines (extracting this tarball at the start of every step), but ideally, such a workaround is not necessary.
