my goal is to deploy "production-like" slaves with no configuration, run
the setup installers, install the build, reboot, run functional tests,
acceptance tests.

the main thing is that buildbot should not be on a production machine,
although python would be.

something like wmic (can it accept password as an argument?) or powershell
remote execution...
