That's fine -- but it should be optional to specify the multi-method, and
if not specified, it use some user-specifiable default.  The plethora
of methods provided by tramp is good, but I think most people will only
want to use a few in their environment, and can default quite a bit.
[In any case, the syntax chosen should definitely make it possible to
leave out the multi-method, to allow for the future.]

.Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
