No, I'm saying that in order for VC-dired to make sense when files can
belong to several backends, the "current backend" should be per-buffer
rather than per-file.

So you can have a VC-dired buffer in CVS mode on /foo/bar while having
file /foo/bar/baz in another buffer and switching between CVS and RCS
backends in that buffer.
