Originally, I asked how to achieve a certain effect in defcustom.
Now the plan is to do something entirely different, and a side effect
of that plan is that the effect I originally asked about isn't needed
The old plan was to allow the user to type filenames
"/rsh:address@hidden:bla" and the system would know whether to invoke rsh
The new plan is to require the user to type "/rsh:address@hidden:bla" if
rsh is to be invoked, and "/remsh:address@hidden:bla" if remsh is to be
With the new plan, the file name corresponds to the Unix command being
used, and I guess that people are familiar with those names.
(Ideally, autodetection of the command to be used to contact the
remote host would be desirable. But it takes a long time to try
several methods for connecting. So users have to specify the command
in the file name.)
