it's not a useless if, it's a error handling if, you must do it.
and this error checking should be done after eina_hash_new() and like,
not before these other calls, unless you can work without the hash, in
tha case you must do this special case anyway.
if people start to use few eina_hash_new() as it is supposed to be
instead of delete it when it's empty and create it before each add,
then this will be one if at the constructor and that's all.
