I can't think of a huge benefit at the moment. Like you say, better to
wait until people start using it before doing something like that.

I agree (although I'm not implementing it!) Currently recursive
overlays are un-usable for us. I'd even rather see no overlays on
folders until the entire information is available, than the current
state which locks explorer.

A lot of the time I browse the project folder, I'm just looking at
files, not to see the status of everything. Currently everytime I do
this, explorer locks up whilst fetching status if recursive overlays is
turned on.

I'd rather it displayed nothing and left explorer responsive, and on the
occasions where I want to see the state of folders, I just wait until
the icons appear.

Cheers

Russell
