The fish protocol expects a fish server on the remote side. Konqueror
transfers such a server (.fishsrv.pl) initially, when it doesn't exist

I'm currently implementing the fish protocol for Tramp 2.1, driven by
performance considerations. But (at least for the time being) it isn't
foreseen to provide such a server by Tramp; it should be available on
the remote side already.

The fish protocol defines a fallback in case there is no server on the
remote side: use shell commands. One could say that Tramp has
implemented this fallback already :-)

Anyway, this won't be available for Emacs 22.1, because Tramp 2.0 is
integrated there.
