Python install-requires incorrect

Bug Description

Ubuntu unbundles urllib3 from requests, but the Python metadata for the python-requests package is missing urllib3 - which needs to be pinned to the exact version that requests had bundled to avoid failures (at least while their support model is one-and-only-one-and-its-vendored).

The lack of that metadata lets pip upgrade urllib3 without requests, leading to requests failures, even with --user as the default.
