I have to use both TSVN and TCVS in my office, since a lot of our old

Does the way the icon handler is built give room to supporting different
icon sets for different working copies? For me it would be handy to see at a
glance which working copies are based on my local test repository and which
ones are based on other repositories.

If I could choose the icon set per working copy, the icons could serve as
unintrusive indicators of the type of working copy. No idea if others would
appreciate this as a feature too?
