Slightly offtopic, but I've noticed that some consumers of bandit[0]
have been creating requirements-bandit.txt.  This is to specify bandit
requirements without requiring the whole test-requirements.txt env to
be installed, to run what is essentially a linting tool.

I'm not sure I like the idea of creating MORE requirements.txt style
files as it pollutes the project root namespace and currently has no
syncing from global-requirements.

I wondered if you had any ideas on how to solve this for bandit usage,
and potentially other projects?
