virt-viewer in this case is still running from the browser plugin, or
are we expecting users to launch virt-viewer themselves?

If we control the launching of virt-viewer (eg. through the browser
plugin) then can we obtain a one-time password or key from the QEMU
server on the managed node?  If we can obtain one, then we can easily
pass it through to virt-viewer via an HTML <embed> parameter which
gets passed to the virt-viewer command line.

I think I'm not sure of the exact constraints that this needs to
operate under.
