I don't believe this is preferred. Tramp's URL-like syntax competes with
url-handlers.el. This is another reason I believe we should remove it
from Tramp.

If we want to solve the ambiguities in Tramp's primary syntax, we should
change the separator between methods and user/host names. Or we should
switch to the syntax used in XEmacs. But that's another story.
