Hm?  There are two kinds of Tramp filenames, multi-hop names and
normal names.  Normal names look like this:


Multi-hop names look like this (using "[...]" to indicate that I've
left out something):


In both cases, I'm looking for a word that describes "/path/to/file".

So if a hostname is mentioned in "/path/to/file", it will not be
interpreted specially.

It *is* somewhat confusing that the "localname" names a file on a
remote host, but that just depends on the way you look at it...
