   ... So Tramp will use
   telnet on that machine.  And then the user will use an insecure
   transport channel, without really being very much aware of it.  This
   is dangerous.

I have always been assuming that tramp would tell me, quite vividly,
what method I am using.  (The autodetection might put the method into
the file name or something like that.)  I am now and want in the
future to be very conscious of which kind of transport channel I am

Hmmm.... if auto-detection takes place behind my back -- that is to
say, I simply find-file somewhere and don't see that the transport
channel is telnet, then I am stuck.  I have to assum the worst.

I hate to say it, but I think that auto-detection should add the name
of the method to the filename, so I see and notice it when the
filename changes during the connection process.
