I've never held back anything in the overlays component just because it
wasn't implemented in TSVN yet.
But I do need something to test the changes in the overlays component
before I can make a release. And usually for that I'm using TSVN.
So if that's a problem for you, I'm sorry.

And that is my fault?
All you have to do is to implement those options in THg before you ship
it with the new overlays component.

How much time do you need to implement two checkboxes in your options
And how much time do you need to go back to an earlier version of the
overlays component?

Do the math.

But in an unreleased version of TSVN. There's still plenty of time for
you until the next version of TSVN is released.

Why was this surprising?
If you hadn't checked the code, you wouldn't even have noticed it
because it wouldn't have affected your client at all.

I may have this ready this weekend. But don't count on it.
