Ticket 50 is about the conch command line client.  I'm not sure if the
rest of conch, the part you would use to automate an SSH login, works on
Windows or not.  It shouldn't be affected by the lack of an fcntl module
(or any of the other modules missing on Windows), but it may accidentally
import them, preventing the code from working out of the box, even though
it doesn't use them.  This is probably simpler to fix than actually writing
a command line client.  However, it may already work; I don't have a Windows
machine handy to try, but by looking at buildbot I can see that a significant
portion of the Conch test suite runs and passes on there.
