The problem is with this macro:

  @macro trampfn {method, user, host, address@hidden
  @end macro

It uses intermediate macros, because the manual calls this macro with
some of its arguments empty, e.g.:

  @trampfn{telnet, , , /usr/local/bin/etc}

and it wants the prefixes and postfixes (@ and :) not to appear when
the corresponding argument is empty.

I think the best way to fix this would be to introduce several macros,
one each for every number of non-empty arguments, and then use each
one as needed.  A bit less convenient, perhaps, but much more

The question is would Michael accept this solution.
