None of that is a problem for me.  Instead of SSH, I suggest plink
from PuTTY (which Tramp supports out of the box), and the "mini posix
environment" that comes with GIT, which are MSYS programs, is
available in native MinGW ports from GnuWin32.

So, while the initial setup does takes some effort, it is not too hard
and doesn't require anything except unzipping a bunch of archives and
setting up PATH.
