Hmm... I know it has limitations, but I haven't heard of problems with
it linked to issues such as cygwin file names being confused as remote
file names.

I think environments implemented via file-name-handlers-alist would only
affect process-file, start-file-process, and maybe a couple more
functions, and wouldn't otherwise "change the semantics of file names"
any more than jka-compr.
