[openstack-dev] [requirements] Adding objgraph to global requirements

After some discussion in IRC on this topic there was an idea just to write and push upstream needed tools using objgraph w/o having it in the requirements.txt at all. We just need to make sure that those tools are never used during production runs and unit tests (CI will help to verify that). If needed, objgraph can be manually installed used when we need to investigate something.

If such practice is considered OK and doesn’t violate any OpenStack guidelines then I think this would work, at least in my case.
