Pip's requirements.txt (run 'pip freeze') needs version specifications
in the same format as easy_install, so with 'package == 1.0' (double
equals-sign) or 'package >= 2.0', so it is not the same format.

A script (or extension, or core buildout) could read the pinned versions
and basically do this:
sed 's/=/==/' versions.cfg > requirements.txt
