Description of problem:

Following bug 1215436 and a discussion with Alon, we should tell users to use
vdsm tools to access the console. If vdsm does not yet provide such tools
(didn't check), we should open a dependent bug there.

After a brief discussion with Didi, he is basically asking to:
1. add another option to vdsClient (or a dedicated new tool) to actually act as a wrapper of socat letting the user connect to the VM using that instead of directly using socat
2. from hosted-engine-setup just print: 'use vdsClient --connectVMConsole <vmname>' per something similar hiding all the connection details.
Probably we could also use the same command with an additional option to let the user choose a textual or graphical connection.

The benefit of this is that we move all the connection handling details in VDSM and we completely decouple hosted-engine-setup on this side: any new parameter or connection strategy will be handled on VDSM side only.

VDSM does not have a console feature we can use, therefore closing the bug.
