I guess rlogin is superseded by ssh almost everywhere. Maybe a few
places are still using rlogin to connect internally between trusted
hosts where encryption is not needed.

Whether rlogin.el is obsolete, I dunno. You can use it with ssh by doing:

emacs -Q --eval '(setq rlogin-program "slogin"
   rlogin-explicit-args (list "-t" "-t"))' -f rlogin

Does this offer anything that M-x shell followed by ssh, or Tramp, doesn't?
Probably not.
