option to run a requirements.txt install first

Issue #36 on hold

it's reasonable to want to maintain both install_requires and a requirements.txt. http://stackoverflow.com/a/7085000

if you're doing that, there seems to be no way to lay down the requirements first before your distribution gets installed, which is what you want.

I see a number of people adding "pip install -r requirements.txt" lines into the the test command option, but that's happening after the distribution is installed.

    I happened to find this by accident ;)

    Not sure how things looked 4 years ago, but nowdays you can do deps = -rrequirements.txt in tox.ini and that'll happen. So I think this can be closed?
