`file-name-shadow-mode' makes it quite obvious for the user what
happens.  It has been discussed previously to turn on
`file-name-shadow-mode' by default.  IIRC Richard asked people to try
it and check if there are problems.  I've been using
`file-name-shadow-mode' for about one year now (I didn't know about it
before) and I think it should be turned on by default.

Bye, Reiner.
