Don't think I like this.  Seems a very big jump from how this normally
works.  What I mean is that it feels like it's builtin interperter
functionality, while really it's a module/script doing distutils-like
stuff.  I'd feel more comfortable with something like:

    $ python -m some_tool --remove MyPackage

Definitely -1 on the short option.
