Straightforward way to take a flattened "panoramic" photograph of a round object?

I'd like to take some photos of round objects and stitch them together into an image as if the object had been unrolled (e.g. flattening the wraparound label of a wine bottle).
I've found a couple tutorials online about flattening a single image of a round object, but it seems like there must be a way to utilize an existing panorama package/etc to do this. It may be that there's a technical term for this I don't know that's preventing me from finding some good instructions.
I'm basically naive with respect to image editing, but I'm fairly tech-competent and have access to the Photoshops, et cetera.
