I came across a file that had two different coding cookies -- one on

suggestion (apart from following CPython)?

I think it should follow CPython.

As I see it, CPython allows it to be on the second line because the
first line might be needed for the shebang.

If the first two lines both had an encoding, and then you inserted a
shebang line, the second one would be ignored anyway.

A further thought: is mypy just assuming that the first line contains the shebang?

If there's only one encoding line, and it's the first line, does mypy still get it right?
