python-service-identity should be an optional dep.

Please add python2-requests as a dependency.

It seems the python2-magic package has changed name from Magic-file-extensions to file-magic, which breaks this package. This change resolves the issue for me:

@@ -33,7 +33,7 @@ build() {
# "Magic-file-extensions", as opposed to the python-magic on pypi. The
# result is that the alot executable can't find the module, so we patch
# to fix the dependency:
- sed -i -e 's/python-magic/Magic-file-extensions/'
+ sed -i -e 's/python-magic/file-magic/'
python2 build
make SPHINXBUILD=sphinx-build2 -C docs man html

This also depends on python2-setuptools, otherwise running `alot` from a shell results in:

$ alot
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/alot", line 6, in <module>
from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
ImportError: No module named pkg_resources

Thanks for packaging alot BTW!
