This would be great for compiling programs, but from what I have
seen, it has to be done carefully to avoid breaking things.  For
example, Tramp 2.1's current emulation interacts badly with
`ediff-buffers', which will sometimes write temporary files
locally, then try to diff them on the remote system.  So it seems
like it may be necessary to explicitly allow or prevent
individual calls to start-process from being handled remotely.
