in bug#16984 it was discussed, how to suppress expansion of "~" in file
names like "/path/~/file". One possible solution is to quote the file
name, like "/:/path/~/file".

This has the disadvantage, that remote file names are not handled
properly, like "/:/ssh:address@hidden:/path/~/file". I made the proposal to
apply the file name quoting to the local name of remote files instead,
like "/ssh:address@hidden:/:/path/~/file". There was no reaction.

What do people think? Is this something we could do?

Thanks, and best regards, Michael.
