elm entry (text|entry) get cannot return NULL
Open, TODOPublic

Description

T7079 is caused by this behavior. When there is no text in an entry widget, the widget will return "" to the user instead of NULL. This is not documented anywhere, and it seems to be a very confusing behavior. Should this be changed for 2.0?
