Bug Description

Initially Horizon only supported VNC. As support for new console types was added, the code was expanded for each console without necessarily looking at the whole, and now the code could use a bit of freshening up. This is particularly obvious in

From a comment on :

"We should have a common Console class that's aware of the different types, and a common means of detecting which console type to use for the instance rather than the chain of try/except statements."

    Refactor code around Console support

    Add a console module to handle the different kinds on remote consoles
    supported (vnc, rdp, spice ) and refactor the code
    to use console.get_console.

    In the future, a matrix based on HyperVisor could be added
    in case that only one type of console is supported.
    Ex: HyperV <=> RDP
