I meant the function name is somewhat similar to what we want but not
the behavior. IMO, ideally in Emacs, something-p (like symbolp or
functionp..) is used to test the argument, along the same line, I
thought file-remote-p or dir-remote-p would be intuitive to test
whether file/dir is a remote or not.
 A suggestion, to avoid confusion by modifying file-remote-p would be
to use file-local-p

(defvar remote-fs-path-re "\\`\\([\\/][\\/]\\|/net/\\|/afs/\\)") 
(defun file-local-p (file)
 "Returns t if local file or nil for remote file"
 (not (string-match remote-fs-path-re file)))

and use (not (file-local-p dir)) in the earlier patch...
