"/" matches `tramp-completion-file-name-regexp'. Any single
(expand-file-name "/") loads Tramp after my recent changes.

That's not new, because it's a similar story with Emacs 21 and
`ange-ftp-completion-hook-function'. The only difference is that
Ange-FTP is loaded only for `file-name-completion┬┤, whereas
Tramp is loaded in more cases.

I was thinking about a customer option, which let's the user decide
whether (s)he wants Tramp hostname completion. If decided for NO,
Tramp would be loaded only when a remote file is requested.

Best regards, Michael.
