how to show no icons in Windows Explorer

Is there any way to make Mercurial not show the icons for a given working
tree in Explorer under Windows ?
While still showing them for other working trees.
And if so, is there a way to make exceptions to that exception ?

I have the folder "c:\src" which contains the main Hg repo (but is also my
cvs sandbox, so I want those icons visible there, not the Hg ones).
And I have the folder "c:\src\branches" where I keep several branch Hg
repo's (of course, "c:\src\branches" is hgignored for the Hg repo in

So I want to have no Hg icons in Explorer for "c:\src", but I do still want
them for the subfolders of "c:\src\branches".

(I know, if there is a way to have no icons for a working tree, I could
move "c:\src\branches" out of "c:\src" to give it the icons again, but I
have my reasons to keep it under "c:\src". For now anyway.)

Kind regards,
Johan Samyn
