OK, this is *almost* what I needed.  I really want a way to say

What about

   (add-to-list 'tramp-default-proxies-alist
                '("\\`localhost\\'" nil nil))

as first rule in `tramp-default-proxies-alist'?

Unfortunately, that won't match because TRAMP seems to use the result of

 $ hostname

But that's the same as (system-name) in ELisp. So you can write

   (add-to-list 'tramp-default-proxies-alist
                `(,(format "\\`%s\\'" (system-name)) nil nil))

Yes, of course I can. However, as I wrote, this is not achievable with the customize UI, and I think it's an important enough use case that it should be made possible with customize.
