 The package manager may optionally determine the EAPI of an ebuild by parsing its first non-blank
-and non-comment line, using above regular expression. If a recognised EAPI has been determined

 ebuild with bash is identical to the EAPI obtained by parsing. The ebuild must be treated as
 invalid if these values are different.
