Ah, forwarding to Ange-FTP is what I had in mind.  I forgot that
after your changes, everything works differently :-)  I think with
the old version, the forwarding might have failed.

So Tramp includes the "support" that I was thinking of, already.

`Hmm' indeed!  I wonder what would happen if Tramp was removed from
file-name-handler-alist and Ange-FTP was added and then Clemens tried
to access the file via Ange-FTP (using the old syntax).

I hope I have time to debug this soon.
