Yeah, that's not a bad idea too.

One of the interesting things that turned up from this exercise
so far, is that having a shortcut to virsh.exe in the windows
install menu doesn't work (tried it).  Virsh (on windows) needs
to be given a connection string in order to do anything.  Without
it, it just displays an error message then exits.

Using a shortcut at the moment means the user sees a black
dos prompt screen show up for a fraction of a second (not long
enough to read the text) then disappear.  Not real practical, so
disabled the shortcut creation.

Thinking what we'd probably want to do for virsh is have a
dialog or something that lets the user assemble a connection
string, then launches virsh using that.  Someone probably has
a better idea than that though. :)
