ok - the REASON for this is these flags come directly from ecore_x - as it
determines a double or triple click and simply sets flags - thus it knows
nothing about evas objects.  up events dont have this flag as the "click" is
the mouse down event as such - well in ecore_x's view of the world, so a double
click happens when a 2nd mouse down happens within a short enough time from a
previous mouse down on the same window. triple is the same but withint another
period from the first mouse down too. so that's why - evas doesnt process this
- it simply shrugs and passes it on to the objects. now yes - you are right.
evas shoudl be looking at the double and triple flags and if the objects
receiving them have changed  between the last 1/2 events - unset those flags.
