-1 on that syntax. It's an extra operator, with a non-obvious meaning;
the meaning should be as clear as feasible even to those who have not
read the specification. The existing operators ‘>’, ‘>=’, ‘<’ ‘<=’ are
standard and more obvious.
That is, the existing operators:
Requires-Python: >=2.5, <2.6
explicitly specify the range in your example.
