the problem here may be when "old parsing" will wrongly parse a
malformed EAPI 42 assignment (so that new parsing doesnt detect an
EAPI and assumes its 0) as EAPI 4.
this is a purely hypothetical scenario that will be easily detected if
it ever happens, though :)
anyway, "new parsing" != "old parsing" should trigger a repoman
warning for old EAPIs.
