HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers
looks likely. It's probably in the TSVN docs somewhere too, I'm not
sure.

It's probably determined at runtime. The TSVN overlay key names I see
have numbers at the beginning of them, so it may be possible to hack
around with those to change priority, but I honestly don't know what
it'd do. Insert standard regedit disclaimers here.
