Hi Lucas De Marchi,

OK, my wrong I have used wrong words. I was a little in shock when I
found how it works. I asked few people which work with this port about 
"how to export function from from efl port" and everybody said that I 
should use EAPI. Anyway, it is not "almost 2" years also. ;)

I would like to discuses this topic only how we should clean up EAPI 
mess now or left it as it it. I am asking about it due to current 
situation is not clear:

I would like to ask:
1) what EAPI macro means in our port now?
2) how to find out base on code which function/c++ object is exported?
3) Should we not use EAPI any longer? Should we delete EAPI from our
