Are package managers expected to enforce this in the parsing stage (at least within the first 20 lines) or is it OK to stop reading as soon as you see a valid EAPI= line (so any conflicting later assignments would get caught by making sure the post-source EAPI matches the parsed one, but redundant assignments with the same EAPI would get through)?
