So yeah, I've literally used sed to replace every occurrence of
ecore_time_add() with ecore_timer_loop_add() because I'm reasonably
confident that no part of E has a legitimate need for timer based on the
exact current time.
It would be really nice if I'm not wrong. :)
The reason for this is the incredible spew of clock_gettime() calls I'm
seeing on an ARM system (that should have a vdso for gettime, but...)
This can amount to thousands of system calls per second.
this allows video files to be played for wapapers - they loop and run
indefinitely. it is a special video object that shares the same source
across all outputs, so if you have the same video set, on 2 screens
(or desktops) then it's only decoded once and uses proxies to
ducplicate. this works in the pager too (it uses proxies).
this is for amusement and fun and ... because we can. :)
