Don't use it then. It's for the people who want it.

Before tortoise could show the repository lock status, subversion itself
would have to support caching this information in the .svn directory.

I have never requested that shellex contact the repository. But I do
request that icons show repository lock status.

Explorer will not become degraded in any way.

Tortoise already changes icon overlays based on information in the .svn
directory. What I am talking about falls within this model, and never
causes explorer to ever become unusable.
