installing and uninstalling packages...

I have two quick questions about managing packages:

1) I'm writing a simple module with which I would like to include a
couple of macros for the MoinMoin wiki system.  The files I want to
install are, say:

I'd like to install MainModule and ExtraFunctions as usual in the
local site-packages directory (on my debian system:
/usr/local/lib/python2.3/site-packages/).  As for the Moin  macros,
I'd like ot check somehow if MoinMoin is installed on the system, and
if it's installed, put the MoinMacro(1|2).py files in the moin macro
directory (again, on my system:
/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/MoinMoin/macro/).  Is there a way to
do this in

2)  a more general question:  is there an accepted way to uninstall
packages once they've been installed?  I didn't notice documentation
on this feature in the manual.  

thanks much!
