Currently, the checks are performed by sending a single command to the other
end, then waiting for the shell prompt, then sending another command, and so
on.  I think it could be quite a bit faster to send a shell script that does
all the detecting in one go.  This would also avoid all the problems with
caching.  There is already a little bit of that -- setting the remote path is
done with a single shell script.  It works quite well.
