      Hello,

  Yesterday I completed Python (and maybe other scripting languages) 
support for Windows, so OSE trunk should have functional version (2.2.2 
doesn't have it, as change is pretty intrusive). Feel free to test and 
report issues (there are few known, already, but vboxshell.py works).

   Nikolay.
