Just my 2 cents, I have placed EAPI right after the # $Header: line of
each ebuild, as I felt that it was the first thing to know of the
ebuild, as it describes how you possibly have to process the rest of the
ebuild. Examples can be found in the prefix overlay, e.g.
It has the advantage for me that EAPI is never hidden away somewhere
down the ebuild, and it is just inserted by a simple bash script
automagically (eapify in this case).
