RFC: Some icons missing

Hi folks,

The "some of my overlays are missing" problem has been around since
the beginning, but it seems to be getting worse now with more programs
making use of overlays. To compound the problem it seems that the
overlays are picked up in install order, so if you upgrade TSVN the
overlays can disappear for no apparent reason.

Using regedit as a diagnostic is OK, as long as you know where to look
(HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers)
and how to interpret the results. But how difficult would it be to add
a diagnostics dialog called from the Settings->overlays which shows
the content of that key in some form so that users can see why the
overlays are oversubscribed without calling the helpline? A Go/No-Go
marker next to each of the TSVN overlays to show whether that overlay
can be used would also help.

An enhancement to this would be to add a checkbox beside each overlay
to allow it to be disabled (maybe by prefixing the key name with
"Disabled-" or something like that).

Simon
