The fewer dependencies a project has, the easier this becomes. I'm
not against projects continuing to do it if they can get it to work,
but wouldn't want us to pressure folks to spend undue effort on it
when they already have a lot more on their plates. I can understand
where for projects with a very large set of direct dependencies this
still has the problem that your stated minimums may conflict with
(semi-circular) dependencies declared elsewhere in the transitive
dependency set outside your lower-constraints.txt/requirements.txt
