The building part is not very hard, then you need to figure out which dll
to add alongside the plugin, and then getting ovirt to use it (though now
the last part should be easier).

The way it works is that you enable native support in the oVirt console
options, then when you click on the 'console' button, this gives you a link
to a .vv file that you open using remote-viewer. And remote-viewer should
be able to connect to the VM using that file.
