Configure job requirements programmatically

Our software needs to be built on a dedicated agent based on the software version ( below version X, build on agent A, above version X, build on agent B). The "easy" approach would be to create 2 plans with the 2 requirements sets and simply invoke the appropriate plan based on the version we are trying to build. The problem with this approach is that there are now 2 plans ( with 4 stages and a lot of jobs) duplicated : 3 stages are similar and only 1 job differs in one stage. My main concern with this is the space taken by the checkouts on the agents.

Is there a way to "programmatically" update a job requirement ( that would be done in the first stage first job and be used at stage 2) ?

This approach is probably frowned upon, but with firefox and the firebug plugin you can see the POST calls being made when you manipulate settings in the web UI. You can make those same calls from the command line or script using curl (I'm assuming linux). This is not a great solution since the URLs used in the Bamboo web UI are not public and can change from version to version.
