   Ah, yes, Tramp should handle INFILE being nil.  I think it doesn't do
   that, yet.

I am not completely sure about that any more.  Maybe it can just let
`call-process' handle it.

But did you see the patch proposed on emacs-pretest-bug?  (Not in the
archives yet.)  I could forward it privately, if you do not read
emacs-pretest-bug.  I am going to test it right now.

But _at first sight_ it might also seem good if process-file saved the
return value of the call to call-process and returned it.  That would
make it more similar to `call-process'.  (Assuming that I am not
misunderstanding something, which might quite well be the case.)
