This was included in the end

But now there is another deprecation and by default Ecore_data si gone:

So what would be OE way to handle?
1) enable Ecore_data to build etk/epsilon ok (for a while before
something else broke it again)
2) move etk/epsilon + depending apps to obsolete dir (list of apps
from previous e-mail + check if they really still depends on it or
it's just DEPENDS relict).

I prefer 2) and if there is somebody who really needs etk/epsilon then
he probably wants also older EFL_SRCREV for his obsolete app.
