incorrect.  it's with people adding libraries that are only needed for
*test* purposes not production / install purposes but those libraries
bit-rotting and/or not properly being maintained or coordinated
because the developers didn't communicate correctly or list the right

this is normally taken care of by a distro, who go to the trouble of
properly testing everything and snapshotting a coordinated release.

being outside of that, we're on our own here.

cocotb should in this instance have been added to "tests_require", not
the main install_requires dependencies
