I think I don't understand what are planing to do. Do you want to
silently use the old "non-standard *hard* tab width setting"? IMO this
isn't a good idea. So, if you ignore this old seting, it shouldn't be
ignored silently.

I currently have no spare time. But as soon as I have the time, I plan to
write a plugin or a LUA script to add modelines and timestamps (search
for the sequence "Time-Stamp:" inside the first comment/lines and insert
the date+time behind it). One point inside a huge TODO list. ;-)
