Hi Stefan,

Thanks for writing this plugin.

We are also (slowly) working in getting the overlay icon to work in Dolphin. 
And as you mentioned KVersionControlPlugin is limited as we cannot show the 
shared state which we would really want to have.

Which is why we are trying to get a new interface in Dolphin to have generic 
overlay icons
