all you are doing is to revert the work upstream is doing to try and improve
stability - but if that is what you want to do - feel free. we will also feel
free to ignore any bug reports or issues as we no long know what release your
built against.

we explicitly released a shanpshot with that version name/tage so we know what
you build against. don't blame upstream. we announced:


on enlightenment.org's front page. if you choose to update to a sevnrev
somewhere in between you will get arbitrary soames as if you are using svn we
assume you are a developer and are regularly updating and rebuilding. if you
use a "Blessed" svnrev (or release tarballs) then you will be doing well.

i will do a similar rename of sonames and release of elementary later this
month along with a new snap of core efl as before (this time it will be 02
instead of 01.)
