It can definitely be uninstalled. But how to do it depends on what you 

- MacPython 2.2.1 - Simply remove the /Applications/Python folder. You 
may also want to remove /Library/CFMSupport/PythonCore and 
~/Library/Preferences/Python* but they won't do any harm.
- Unix Python 2.2.1 from the source tarball - Remove the source. If you 
also did "make install" also remove /usr/local/bin/python* and 
/usr/local/lib/python*. If you did "make frameworkinstall" see below.
- MachoPython 2.2.1 from the wxPython download site - Remove 
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework and /Applications/Python.app.
