Fully agree, actually I am using enum in my patch already :)

Thanks for the hint! Will try to figure out which is appropriate version.

API breakages aside, the idea sounds appealing, but the proposed function signatures could be improved: the biggest risk I see with switching from separate function calls to passing the property name as a string is that you also switch from compile-time checks (for property name typos, for example) to run-time checks. Have you thought of using an enum instead for properties?
Bear in mind that you'll probably need to bump the Eina revision in jhbuild.modules if you do plan on using Eina_Value (and there's been no stable revision with it yet).
