Subversion Icons

It would be awesome if FileZilla could display Subversion (SVN) icons when inside of a local SVN directory. A lot of work we do has us uploading files to a SVN server. When everything functions fine locally we'll upload files which have been marked as updated, then commit to our SVN server. If we could view the icons inside of FileZilla, it would be much nicer than dragging and dropping the highlighted files from Explorer to FileZilla.

TortoiseSVN updates the appearance of icons in Explorer, including save as and open dialog windows. It might be easier to hook into the Explorer API when displaying local icons than to fully integrate an SVN library.

FileZilla does not use Explorer's Shell API interface on purpose due to the glacially slow speeds of Explorer. [*] As such, displaying the overlays from TortoiseSVN is not possible.

The only possible solution would be to integrate a subversion library into FileZilla, and along the same lines, libraries for Git, Bazaar, Mercurial, CVS and so on and so forth. I do not have any intentions of doing so.

[*] FileZilla has been successfully tested with directories containing millions of files, directories so large, Explorer cannot handle them at all.
