"Remote" is just one possibility.  It can also be local under
a different UID, or it could be local in a virtual machine, ...

The way I think of it is that this argument to `make-process` tells
Emacs that this `make-process` call should be considered a file
operation, in the sense that the place where the process is run will be
chosen according to default-directory and file-name-handler-alist.
