it's a tar.gz. you unzip it and run "python setup.py install" which is,
I gather, the normal way to install Python stuff (except, of course, for
those things in a RPM or DEB or whatever package). As far as I can figure
out by staring blankly at the code in setup.py, there isn't any (obvious)
uninstall function.
