But this assumes that `openp is called for the same file op for which
the value inhibit-file-name-operation was set, doesn't it?  I'm not
sure such an assumption is safe: `openp' is a very popular utility
function, it is called by many Lisp APIs, and could very well be
called by some primitive that has nothing to do with
inhibit-file-name-operation's value.

Let me turn the table and ask you: why doesn't Tramp inhibit _all_ its
file name handlers in this case?  IIUC, what we want here is to have
`load' do its thing with a local file.  So which other handlers could
we want to be active in this case?

(There's still a broader issue with the apparent discrepancy between
the handler test in `load' and the similar test in `openp', of
course.)
