I create some WSP Files on a build server every night and would like to automatically deploy them to a QA Environment.

In SharePoint 2007, there was no way to remote deploy WSP Files except for ugly psexec-workarounds.

Has this improved with SharePoint 2010? Can I utilize the PowerShell stuff somehow?

My build server is not Part of the SharePoint farm. It doesn't even run the same SharePoint version (It runs a standalone Foundation, whereas the real farm runs Standard)

There is nothing built in to SP2010 to provide for this, but the remoting story in PowerShell is much better than psexec.

Zach Rosenfield has a blog post about installing SharePoint remotely that should help you get started.
