In principle you ought to be able to use some kind of DCOM bridge
(since WMI access if via COM/DCOM). I've no idea if anyone's attempted
this or even if all the pieces are in place.

If this won't fly, it should be simple enough to use one of the many,
many RPC-ish mechanisms, whether all-Python or otherwise, to
call into a WMI proxy service you could run on the chosen Windows
