libssh2 itself is just an implementation detail. It's an ssh library
that in the future will be used for remote execution.
Could you make a bug about the Windows support to bugs.meego.com against
testrunner-lite? We will then assign the bug and start by briefly
testing if testrunner-lite will work in Windows. Then we can continue
this discussion in MeeGo Bugzilla.
