This has also been possible for years already using either PBR or
distutils2. For example, hundreds of Python packages produced by the
OpenStack community use a branchless boilerplate setup.py which
declares a setup_requires on the pbr package, and then everything
else goes into an INI-formatted setup.cfg file (except for
install_requires which are drawn from requirements.txt instead).
