Should handle pip requirements with relative paths

Issue #102 on hold
created an issue

tox executes 'pip install' with changing cwd to envlogdir (.tox/py27/log)

If tox.ini takes deps from requirements.txt file and it contains relative paths installation will failed.


-e lib/python-package


deps = -r{toxinidir}/requirements.txt

/tmp/prj/$ tox -e py27 -v

/tmp/prj/.tox/py27/log$ /tmp/prj/.tox/py27/bin/pip install --download-cache=/tmp/.pip/cache -r/tmp/prj/requirements.txt >/tmp/prj/.tox/py27/log/py27-1.log  
ERROR: invocation failed, logfile: /tmp/prj/.tox/py27/log/py27-1.log  
ERROR: actionid=py27  
lib/python-package should either by a path to a local project or a VCS url beginning with svn+, git+, hg+, or bzr+

When I run same command from console installation success:

/tmp/prj/$ /tmp/prj/.tox/py27/bin/pip install --download-cache=/tmp/.pip/cache django==1.4 -r/tmp/prj/requirements.txt

I suggest tox should not change cwd when runs pip install
