Add GUI for global overlay icon dropping
Created originally on Bitbucket by abuehl (Adrian Buehlmann)
TortoiseOveralys 1.1.0 (now in use for thg 1.0.1) introduced a new global, per user, overlay icon dropping mechanism. Currently, there is a only in TortoiseSVN a GUI to disable the Unversioned and Ignored overlays FOR ALL TORTOISES FOR THAT USER. So if a TortoiseSVN user disables the Unversioned overlay, he disables it for TortoiseHg as well.
See http://code.google.com/p/tortoisesvn/source/detail?spec=svn18986&r=18986 and Stefan Küng's (head of TortoiseSVN) explanation how it works:
This is not yet in a released version of TortoiseSVN (nightly builds only). As a side note, if a TortoiseSVN user deselects/selects one of those settings, then a logoff/logon is needed to make it effective.
Stefan Küng plans to extend this new global overlay icon dropping mechanism to all overlays:
We need to add a GUI to the shells settings dialog in the default branch for this before the thg 1.1 release
