IMO, the default value of tramp-default-method should give good results
for large as well as small files. I don't think a small improvement for
small files justify a very bad performance for large files. And even
though people don't normally _edit_ large files, the do _copy_ them
using dired (at least I do). Emacs is much more than an editor, you know :-)

To make it short: An unexperienced user should get good performance for
small and large files. Experienced users that never edit or copy large
files can easily customize tramp-default-method. IMHO.
