This series is a repost of the previous series taking into account Ewan's feedback wrt error reporting. Additionally, to make things a bit saner, I changed the ssh invocation from being always done in the ctor to being done on demand. This means that xm commands like help won't actually require a password if the ssh transport is being used.

I've also included the HTTP/1.1 Keep-Alive patch as it's required for this patch set.
I've applied this whole set.  Thanks Anthony.  Could we have some
documentation patches too?

I've just noticed that these patches only work on Python 2.4, because they use
subprocess.  I've split SSHTransport out to its own file (which is reasonable
in it's own right anyway), and if the import fails, it now disables the
XML-RPC over SSH altogether.

Ah, sorry, didn't realize that.

If there's anyone out there who wants XML-RPC over SSH on Python 2.3, then a
patch that used popen2.popen2 or xen.util.xpopen.xPopen3 instead of
subprocess.Popen would be welcome.

I'll put this on my TODO. For future reference, what are the official versions of Python that we support and do you happen to know which distros have the older versions?
