Tramp (and partly ange-ftp) are the only file name handlers which offer
process-related implementations. So it isn't wrong to document this, I
believe.

Since we disgree here, let Eli decide.

No, `make-process' does *not* raise an error, it returns a process
object. The process itself aborts, which is a different thing. Tramp
will behave similar.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(make-process :name "foo" :buffer (current-buffer) :command '("/bin/foo"))
#<process foo>

emacs: /bin/foo: No such file or directory

Process foo exited abnormally with code 127

Best regards, Michael.
