I think what you really want to do in this scenario is simply use
Update. If that's not appropriate because the working copy isn't ready
to be updated, then it wouldn't be appropriate to show
repository-specific icons overlays, either. As mentioned in this thread
already, the working copy might be on a different revision than the
repository, and the repository's current status might change at any
time. There is therefore no reasonable way to make overlays apply to the
current repository data -- in TSVN, in any other SVN client, or with a
custom script.
