python uninstall 
should do all the same processing as 'install' but whenever it gets to
the point of copying a file to a system destination, it should instead
unlink the destination.

besides the obvious use, here is another one:
   when upgrading a package, and the new version no longer includes
certain files, just installing the new version will leave leftovers
of the previous version installed.  using uninstall beforehand will
clean out the cruft.
