An uninstall command is a long-time wanted feature of distutils. I was wondering why it was not implemented: what does it need to do to be useful ? AFAIK, make uninstall in autotools simply removes currently installed files, with currently refering to the current configured value of prefix and all. Isn't this enough (I am interested in a 'pure' distutils command, not a setuptools one) ? What would be the minimum semantics needed for an uninstall command ?
