I'm confused - where would the == which you speak of go? IIUC a run_requires looks like

"run_requires": [ { "requires": ["SoftCushions"], "extra": "warmup" }

where each dictionary in the list could have "requires", "extra" and "environment" keys. The "environment" value might have "==" as part of a marker expression. Are you talking about something else?
