As said the other mail, this is provided by the GNU ELPA package
tramp-theme. When writing this package I decided against making it the
default, because people are very idiosyncratic about the modeline.

something into the manual is superfluous. For almost every explanation
there, I still get request to repeat the description in the mailing list
/ on stackexchange / you name it.
