I don't think Trove classifiers have anything to do with this.
Otherwise, we could move *all* the requirements stuff into trove
classification which buys us nothing more than having to maintain a huge
list of trove classifiers.
I like the idea of Requires-Python, but only because I don't see why
Python can't just be specified in the equivalent of setuptools'
install_requires and its ilk.
Why can't python just be treated as another package on while a package
my have a particular version dependency?
