Sorry, haven't thought of that.
Yes, you can look at %CommonProgramFiles%\TortoiseOverlays\icons and see
how the other icon packs are done. You have to use the same filenames as
the existing icon packs.
And yes again: TSVN (more specifically: the TortoiseOverlays handler
which is also used by other Tortoise clients) scans that folder for icon
packs. If you simply add your own there, it will show up in the Settings
dialog where you can then choose your own.
But of course, you have to restart Windows (or kill all explorer
processes) before those changes take effect - the icons are only loaded
once when explorer starts.
