Jython API executeCommandWithTimeout improvements

A) The executeCommandWithTimeout does not handle standard error.
We had to redirect stderr to stdout.

B) The executeCommandWithTimeout (may) block if standard input is not redirected from a file. (The command we are executing does not as far as I can tell read from standard input, so I don't really understand why this is happening)
We redirected /dev/null to stdin (on Linux)

C) There seems to be no way of pushing scripts to the target server before running executeCommandWithTimeout.
We have solved this on Linux with some code in the that will rsync scripts to the target server.
This should be standard feature, so adding some lines in the template should take care of that.
We need to put both a CTS specific script and some python libraries shared by multiple CTSs to the target servers.
