Question Desktop Icon Manipulation

Does anyone know the required API calls to do something like how tortoiseSVN works on windows? Im talking about the file icon overlays, like having a green check over the file icon / shortcut. I want to be able to to the same with C#. Obviously native pinvokes are required but I am unfamiliar with the API. Anyone have any thoughts?

SharpShell is a nice C# library for writing Shell Extensions. Just make sure you use .NET 4.0 at least.
