That's beginning to make more sense.  But I just tried the following:

   emacs -Q
   C-x C-f /a TAB :

and then

   emacs -Q
   M-: (setq partial-completion-mode t)
   C-x C-f /a TAB :

and I don't see any difference (Tramp gets loaded when I hit : and no
earlier).  Could you show me another example where I can see
the difference, so I can better understand the tradeoffs?
