I'm not sure if we're talking about the same thing.  Docstring of
`LaTeX-indent-environment-list' says:

,----[ C-h v LaTeX-indent-environment-list RET ]
| LaTeX-indent-environment-list is a variable defined in ‘latex.el’.
| Alist of environments with special indentation.
| The second element in each entry is the function to calculate the
| indentation level in columns.
| Environments present in this list are not filled by filling
| functions, see ‘LaTeX-fill-region-as-paragraph’.
|   You can customize this variable.
| Value:
| (("verbatim" current-indentation)
|  ("verbatim*" current-indentation)
|  ("filecontents" current-indentation)
|  ("filecontents*" current-indentation)
|  ("tabular" LaTeX-indent-tabular)
|  ("tabular*" LaTeX-indent-tabular)
|  ("array" LaTeX-indent-tabular)
|  ("eqnarray" LaTeX-indent-tabular)
|  ("eqnarray*" LaTeX-indent-tabular)
|  ("displaymath")
|  ("equation")
|  ("picture")
|  ("tabbing"))

and the one for `LaTeX-fill-region-as-paragraph' says:

,----[ C-h f LaTeX-fill-region-as-paragraph RET ]
| LaTeX-fill-region-as-paragraph is an interactive native compiled Lisp
| function in ‘latex.el’.
| (LaTeX-fill-region-as-paragraph FROM TO &optional JUSTIFY-FLAG)
| Fill region as one paragraph.
| Break lines to fit ‘fill-column’, but leave all lines ending with
| \\ (plus its optional argument) alone.  Lines with code
| comments and lines ending with ‘\par’ are included in filling but
| act as boundaries.  Prefix arg means justify too.  From program,
| pass args FROM, TO and JUSTIFY-FLAG.
| You can disable filling inside a specific environment by adding
| it to ‘LaTeX-indent-environment-list’, only indentation is
| performed in that case.

Now take this small example:

  %%% Local Variables:
  %%% mode: latex
  %%% TeX-master: t
  %%% End:

Put the point inside the equation environment and hit 'M-q', nothing
happens.  When you type in material, there is a line-wrapping at
`fill-column', but that's all.

So basically this is what happens with Keita's patch: line-wrapping will
happen when you enter math, but hitting 'M-q' later is disabled.
Hitting 'TAB' will adjust the indentation of a line, but there is no
filling.  And there is a comment in `LaTeX-indent-environment-list':

 ;; The following should have their own, smart indentation function.
 ;; Some other day.

Best, Arash
