    I think it would be good to change call-process to check for a
    filename handler, based on the value of default-directory.

It doesn't make sense to run any particular handler for call-process
generally.  What you would want the handler to do, and whether it
makes sense to run one, is specific to a particular program.  So this
change is the wrong way to solve the problem.

M-x replace-string RET call-process RET find-file RET
M-x replace-string RET program RET file RET
C-c C-c
