Yes, I recognized the, sometimes tremendous speed up, and indeed it
made me happy -- but if _this_ is the price, it is much to high (IMO).

I often remotely edit files which intentionally change outside Emacs,
and the risk of loosing data with the new tramp version is high and a
major step backwards compared to the situation before.

Yes, I would highly appreciate that!

I don't know, but I would guess that some of the optimization could be
even kept.  For example when opening an remote file for the first time
the new version is much faster, and at this point of time no
changes would be needed to satisfy my needs, right?
