Rename ecore_wl2
Closed, InvalidPublic


Due to unforeseen circumstances external users have become dependent on ecore_wl2 ABI. Since this library is still beta, we can surrender the name space and allow the external user to maintain ABI compatibliity without great harm to EFL. I suspect part of this stems from eo and ecore_wl2 being gated by the same #define.

This work includes:
Renaming the library
Updating all efl call sites
Removing all API not strictly required by E from the public header
Replacing the conventional BETA_API defines with a more specific define that only E will use
Updating E appropriately

I would propose that we completely eliminate functions from the public header. Users of the API can manually declare the function prototypes and if they break then it's an application bug.

The header should contain nothing but the following as-is:

This namespace will not be stable. It will change. Do not ever use it.

Anyone who tries to include it will then get a compile failure since this is obviously not C, and therefore they will be adequately warned and future instances of this can be prevented.

This may also be the perfect time to fix also....
