Do you have recursive overlays turned on? What version of TSVN are you
running. We've done a lot of work recently to speed-up icon overlays, and
I'd always rather improve them to the point which people didn't need to
turn them off, rather than add interesting ways to disable them.

Current versions of TSVN should have no measurable impact on performance if
you're not in a SVN versioned folder.

The context menu would be a lot easier to implement, and it's not
necessarily a bad idea, as long as it was a simple 'overlays on/off'

And one for recursive? And store the settings separately for each drive type?
It's getting very complicated.... Personally I'd rather improve the caching.

IMNSHO, TSVN has too many options already, I think we should be reluctant
to add any more, and extremely reluctant to let them spill-out into the
normal interface.
