That's what I've tried first. But this fails dumping with temacs (see
corresponding thread some days ago).

The reason that I fail with this approach (and ange-ftp succeeded) is
that `tramp-completion-file-name-handler┬┤ is defined in tramp.el, but
`ange-ftp-completion-hook-function┬┤ is defined in files.el. That's why
temacs tries to load tramp.el ...

No, I don't request that `tramp-completion-file-name-handler┬┤ must be
moved to files.el or suchalike. I could live with the behaviour that
hostname completion is active after loading the first remote file
only. That's the behaviour we've got for years, and nobody did
complain.
