I rarely try out not installed changed too, but now I tried out your patch
and generally I like it.

First I want to note that adding R for Remote doesn't make the mode line
more confusing than it can be already in some extreme cases. For instance,
after renaming the current frame to "R" and using the KOI8-R language
environment (with "R" indication in three slots) we get:


When the directory is remote then we get:


Maybe it would be better to use "@" instead of "R" to indicate the remote


"@" is less likely as the frame name, and "@" has good mnemonic as
a symbol often used in addresses of remote directories.

Also another question: is it possible not to show useless placeholder "-"
when the directory is not remote?
