What to do, as an honest and capable developer, is take the list of "requirements" in the "job specifications", and copy and paste it to the bottom of your CV.

That way, it will get past the HR wankers keyword-checkers superior beings, and find its way to the people who are looking to find a colleague, and who probably didn't ask for a third of the listed requirements.

No, I am not joking; not even a little bit.  Do precisely that -- give it a heading like "Summary of Position Applied For".
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
