  multiple handlers, and for operations that have two file names that may
  each have handlers.
+ @kindex safe-magic (@r{property})
+ Handlers that don't really do anything specal for actual access to the
+ file---such as the ones that implement completion of host names for
+ remote file names---should have a address@hidden @code{safe-magic}
+ property.  For instance, Emacs normally ``protects'' directory names
+ it finds in @code{PATH} from becoming magic, if they look like magic
+ file names, by prefixing them with @samp{/:}.  But if the handler that
+ would be used for them has a address@hidden @code{safe-magic}
+ property, the @samp{/:} is not added.
  @defvar inhibit-file-name-handlers
  This variable holds a list of handlers whose use is presently inhibited
  for a certain operation.
