Great :)

I'm not saying it is not possible. I never tried and I was wondering if
it works. The USB redirection is part of spice-gtk, not virt-viewer. So
you would need to cross-compile spice-gtk with --enable-usbredir and
then build virt-viewer with this new spice-gtk (--with-spice-gtk).

There is mingw package for usbredir, so I believe it will works.
