That's what I'm working on. Tramp shall not be loaded before you type
"C-x C-f /s: TAB" or "C-x C-f /s@ TAB".

Alternatively, we could introduce another value `remote-completion' (or
something like this) to be added to `completion-styles'. Then a user
must place in her .emacs

  (add-to-list 'completion-styles 'remote-completion)

Which solution do you prefer?
