CLI is wrong, it's API (CLI is just derived from API).

the "whats going on" is obvious, and a why is rather uncontroversial here, missing this
was a clear bug.

To me this is like commenting a


# add orig comment if not api comment
$comment = $orig_comment if !defined($api_comment) && defined($orig_comment);

or almost like

# set a to 1 if $b is true
$a = 1 if $b;

which gets one to commenting every da+#!n value assignment? no thanks!
