I think this solution was proposed by a few people a few months back,
when this discussion started.  It would be nice if people came up with
an idea as to how exactly this functionality is to be implemented, and a
set of better usecases than just 'programming' or 'note-taking' or
'TRAMP' or 'git'.

P.S: Please don't suggest things like `use-git-mode' or
`use-tramp-mode'. That kind of thinking doesn't work out.
