   I thought it is quite obvious.

   Most of the SVN view icons taken from CVS plugin and all of them
should have small label "SVN" (like you have it on SVN share type icon
shown in synchronization wizard).

   Primary reason is that when CVS or/and SVN views are used in a "Quick
View" mode user acn only see icons and have to roll over a mouse to see
the view name because icons are the same.

   Should I send these icons to this user list?
