PEP 345 completely misses practical side. I need to specify dependencies for my package, so that people who checked out the source code could run `pip install .` in virtualenv and get everything fetched.

People reading the docs are more practical. What is the alternative if `requires` doesn't work and `install_requires` is not official?
