To keep everyone happy, isn't there a simpler sollution to this problem
than the overlay icons?
How about including a simple GUI tool that allows to search for pre 1.7
working copies in a given path, show the user a list and offering to
upgrade the ones they select.
That way the code is only in memory if needed, typically only executes
once and the user doesn't even have to browse to all the working copies
and click them individually so he could win some time.

Maybe the installer could even include a checkbox to allow automatically
starting the tool after installation if desired, which would make it's
existence obvious to everyone.
