How to roll-back a setup.py install

I don't think this is specific to askbot, but maybe people know. Is there an easy way to "roll-back" to a previous deployed askbot installation?

When I do my setup.py install, I get a new /local/usr/lib/pyshon-site/askbot-x.y.z which contains whatever version of askbot is being deployed.

The previous version is also there. If something is messed up in the new version, is there a quick way to revert to the old version?

There is no automatic way to undo the action of setup.py command, but it is possible to edit .pth files in the site packages directory.

Take a look at pip and virtualenv - very helpful python deployment tools.
