As I already told, I did this and my fellow sysadmins didn't liked. :-(

I found no cygwin-based binaries for virsh, virt-viewer or 
remote-viewer. So far only the mingw-based remote-viewer from 
spice-space.org works, but it's too little for my fellow sysadmins. I'm 
trying virsh and virt-viewer form the same package.
