I thought it was a fantastic solution. In fact all I had to do was do
commit these few lines to my /etc/profile, as I was running distenv on
the server.  This way, distenv is instructed to set a modest prompt for
dumb terminals.  

        if [ x$TERM == xdumb ]; then
        export DE_MONO=1
        export DE_SHORT_PROMPT=1
        export DE_NO_TITLEBAR

However, I am still left with this little, uncolored prompt, that I
can't get tramp to swallow:


Just a couple of brackets and a tilde.  I tried to set this in the
shell-prompt-pattern as well, but couldn't hack it. :,(
