If they are listed in setup.cfg, it doesn't work.  Which is a problem. 
If you include links to the dependencies in your description, it can 
work.  I have done this before; a little hacky but not so bad.

It certainly would be easier if a project could list URLs for its 
dependencies, so that those dependencies didn't have to be findable by
