> The documentation states, that FileUtils.touch implements the UNIX-touch command. However
I may successfully FileUtils.touch files like /etc/passwd, which is not allowed on the shell
as normal user. 
> Looking at the implementation, you should propably raise an IOException if the returnvalue
of `file.setLastModified(System.currentTimeMillis());` is `false`.
