import os
os.utime('myfile', None)

is a bit shorter, of course.

>>> help(os.utime)
Help on built-in function utime:

utime(...)
    utime(path, (atime, utime))
    utime(path, None)

    Set the access and modified time of the file to the given values.  If 
the
    second form is used, set the access and modified times to the current 
time.
