Agreed.  I need to make it safe to import, and then execute any wrapped
functions in-process instead of across a privsep IPC channel.

This is easy enough, except for verifying whether I've caught all the
import issues.  At this point I think my easiest path is to wait until I
have a nova -> os_brick -> privsep change stack, and then go look at the
nova hyper-v test results.

If someone (hyper-v folks?) with a suitable windows development environment
available locally wants to jump in before then, I would certainly
appreciate the assistance.
