Pyuic -- How to Install?

I am trying to utilize the "Python User Interface Compiler" but cannot seem to find how to actually install it. I have PyKDE4, PyQT4 and all of the devel packages installed. What package does pyuic come with?

Using Fedora 10 x86_64.

EDIT: Nevermind, I found out that I have to type "pyuic4" at the command line as opposed to "pyuic." Finally, after an hour of googling I figured it out.

Two little tricks that might help in the future.

One is tab completion--if you type the first few letters of a command, the shell will complete it. For example if I type py and hit the tab key (I don't know python, I'm afraid, so I don't have this program installed, but this is simply an example), I see
pydoc              pylupdate          pysol.bak          pytovid
pygrub             pymakemenu         python             pyuic
pygtk-codegen-2.0  pymakexml          python2
pyidvid            pysol              python2.4
(this is on CentOS--your output, of course, might be different.)

So, if you've installed a program and aren't sure of its name, you can try typing some likely letters--in this case, had you typed pyu and then hit the tab key, you should have gotten pyuic4.

Another handy one, when you're trying to figure out how to get a program or package is

yum provides */<program_name>

For CentOS, it shows me that I need to install PyQt (and that, on CentOS, the program *is* called pyuic.)

(You might have to run this as root or with root privilege---I'm not sure if that's a CentOS thing or yum in general).
