It was not orthogonal, since Stefan was supposedly going to fix the
problems with file-name-shadow-mode.  For instance
`file-name-shadow-mode' gave very confusing results when the file name
contains environment variables, like /home/$USER.  It also did not
know about the `\:' convention.  Stefan posted a patch fixing this.  I
was waiting for Stefan to install his changes before enabling
`file-name-shadow-mode' by default, but apparently Stefan never
installed them and I forgot about the entire thing.
