I've been googling myself silly trying to find an answer to this; my
system's package manager is broken until I can solve it.

I installed some packages using

  python setup.py install

and I need to remove them.  For some packages,

  python setup.py develop --uninstall

is good enough, because it cleans the package out of Python's egg
database (wherever that is), although it doesn't delete the eggs

For other packages, PyPgSQL among them, the above command isn't even
recognized.  This _has_ to be a FAQ, doesn't it?  Please help!
