Yesterday, during a boring hour, I've added some glue code to
url-handlers.el. Didn't look bad, when I've tested in *scratch*

(progn
  (url-handler-mode 1)
  (insert-directory "ssh:///" "-al" nil 'full))

For the password thing, you could use Tramp's password caching
mechanism. Or you could add an entry to .authinfo; Tramp uses
auth-source.el if appropriate.

I have no idea what you mean with this. Could you give me an example of
what you're doing, usually?

Best regards, Michael.
