Also this is mixing up two different drivers, the remote driver vs the
ESX driver. The remote driver with TLS should in fact work, and is indeed
the *only* transport for the driver which we can recommend using from
Windows clients. qemu+tcp:// should not be recommended, because there is
no SASL support yet  and no one wants to be using this unencrypted with
no auth.
