Yeah, it's not a bad plan at all.  Someone just needs to work with upstream
open-iscsi tools to split their stuff out into a library.  I'm totally for this
type of implementation; not only will we not have to fork and exec for some of
this stuff, we should be able to get better error messages as well.

That being said, until this sort of change makes it upstream, we have to work
with what we've got at the moment.
