A suggestion: Maybe each installed client could add its prefered overlay priority to the registry. Then TortoiseOverlays could calculate what icons that should go first for any given combination of installed clients on a machine.
Each client would give a strictly ordered list of most important (lowest number) to least important (highest number) icon.
For example (just an example, real prios may differ):
TortoiseHG might order the overlays as:
0: Modified
1: Normal
2: Added
3: Unversioned
4: Ignored
5: Conflict
6: Deleted
7: Locked
8: ReadOnly
And TortoiseSVN:
0: Modified
1: Normal
2: Added
3: Conflict
4: Ignored
5: Locked
6: ReadOnly
7: Unversioned
8: Deleted
That would give a total priority of:
0: Modified
2 Normal
4: Added
8: Conflict
8: Ignored
10: Unversioned
12: Locked
14: ReadOnly
14: Deleted
Ties could be resolved by favouring TSVN:s choice. ;-)
This would give all clients that use TortoiseOverlay the posibility to ifluence the order of which the overlays should be dropped - thus giving the best possible usability for every installed client.
