Ask questions`requirements.txt` PyPI package info tooltips

Hi! VS Code offers package info hover tooltips out of the box for npm's package.json, but even with this extension there's no similar feature for pip's requirements.txt. I've made an extension which patches that and adds such tooltips, but could we get that into ms-python.python? I could implement that and make a pull request if that'd sit right with you.

Here's my execution of the idea:

Thanks for the suggestion! We talked about it with the team and we have unfortunately decided we will not be moving forward with this idea. We think there isn't an enough widespread need for this to warrant the maintenance cost for the feature.
