Yes, precisely!

It's not weird at all.

Because it makes more sense and is consistent with
make-symbolic-link's arguments of 'FILENAME LINKNAME'.  Actually, just
thinking about it some more, it would probably be better to do...

  (make-symbolic-link "/[method/address@hidden/path/to/filename"

Providing that the Trampish parts of the names get stripped when
writing it to disc.
