That is something that you can of course always to. You just have to
look at the tradeoff. What time it costs you to setup OE for MIPS and
what kind of hassle a self hacked solution can bring over the time.

Well if you only try 0.6.x I would recommend releases and not svn
versions. 0.7 is totally different and so not really compareable to

EFL == Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (Evas, Edje, ETK, EWL,

e_nm is a convience library for the dbus calls to NM. It's part of
e_dbus. You can think about it like what is libnm-glib for GTK is e_nm
for EFL.
