The initial problem is that to use SSH we fork/exec.... not gonna
work on Windows which has no concept of fork/exec. So at the very
least we'd need a completely separate branch of code to deal with
this on Windows.

Co-incidentally I'm in the process of changing all code in libvirt which
uses fork/exec to make use of the 'virRun' and 'virExec' functions in
the util.c file. So if we could figure out an alternate impl of these
virRun & virExec functions for Windows, that'd make it easier to try
SSH support
