efl's upstream last comments on the issue were these:
| Damn... this is... old. The code is using evas engine and X11 directly,
| no ecore, nothing.

| I believe the only real solution we have here is to modify exactimage

| needs to be done.

So I do not expect efl to change back, re-introducing an optional
unfavoured API.
