Okay, but how can I make that generic such that I don't need to add a
new rule to my .emacs file every time I have to use a new username to
log into a particular host?

It can be a regular expression. If you know one which matches every user
but the "transit" user you need to jump first, you're done.

I don't follow and also don't see how that solves the problem when the transit username is the same as that of the user on the remote machine.

I have to admit, it's a little bizarre that all this stuff needs doing, why does:
