I think libsoup is not a good example, because the specific version
doesn't live in meta-oe, but in meta-efl, which is fine IMO.
Being someone who's just in the process of moving a distribution from
OE-classic to OE-core + meta-oe, I've already been busy figuring out the
exact differences between recipes present in both layers. I'd welcome
any reduction in duplication and versions present in both layers.
