Hi all,

Someone asked me today, how to uninstall a package that was installed 
with easy_install. The best I could come up with was, remove the .egg 
file/directory from site-packages and remove the corresponding line from 
easy_install.pth. That's pretty lame and error prone.

Is there a better way?
