I meant ange-ftp.  I mean, tramp.

Yes, I think that would make most sense.

Although I'm not quite sure what the right fix here is.  The `url-file'
function is talking about ange-ftp and efs and has a lot of (featurep
'xemacs) (by the way, is it OK to remove xemacs-related stuff from the
Emacs version of url?  Or is it maintained outside of Emacs, too?) and
stuff...  but here's the backtrace when I get prompted for my password:

  tramp-file-name-handler(file-directory-p "/c:/thing/foo")
  url-file-build-filename([cl-struct-url "file" nil nil nil 21 "/c:/thing/foo" 
nil nil nil nil])
  url-file([cl-struct-url "file" nil nil nil 21 "/c:/thing/foo" nil nil nil 
nil] ignore (nil))
  url-retrieve-internal("file:/c:/thing/foo" ignore (nil) nil)

Are there any variables I can bind to just disable the entire
remote-file-access-thing in `url-file-build-filename'?
