I wondered if there was a limitation on number of handlers per file type. It's too bad that MS didn't provide an equivalent mechanism for Vista.

To carry the question a bit further, though: if it isn't possible to make explorer display the desired content, what about having an item in the TSVN context menu to display a pop-up display for the selected directory? The pop-up window could have all the desired information even if it's a little more work to get to it (not sure if it would be possible to install a hotkey of sorts).

Or is there already a similar way to get all this information?
