I got a bit further - I can push 'readRegistry' command to the Slave 
from inside my build step:

rcmd = buildstep.RemoteCommand(
             {'key' : r"SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0",
              'value' : r"ShellFolder"})
d = self.runCommand(rcmd)

But how do I wait for its completion in a blocking fashion?
