Hmmm. This looked interesting, as I also run TCVS [1.8.31] and TSVN
[1.4.4] on my dev system (Win XP SP2). I will note that at least in
my registry, only the above HKLM version of the key exists - it is not
in HKCU.

Also, after reading "node/105" and then "node/99", I had not expected
to see the layout I find in HKLM\...\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers:

[1-7]TortoiseSVN
Offline Files
TortoiseCVS[0-6]

I guess that TSVN has noticed that Windows is only using 1 slot, and
so has used all 7 that it needed? My 1.4.4 went in long after TCVS,
and after an uninstall of 1.4.3, BTW.

In any case, I am not complaining about anything. ;)
