Oh, I don't know what to do in case when only the current limit
on the output of asynchronous commands should be increased, but
the output of synchronous commands needs to be left unlimited.
I have no idea how to customize it in this case.

Will do as soon as the details of the new option will be clarified.

Thanks, this is the same place where my search found the first occurrence
of "sudo" and there was no info about using it on a remove host
before your addition.

BTW, I see that in info/dir all manual names are capitalized, except Tramp.
This lower-case name looks a little disparaging.
