So, what is the new syntax that has replaced it that enables me to get

None. Use tramp-default-proxies-alist.

Wow. Why was a nice clear and obvious syntax replaced with a bunch of mess in config files?

Maybe we can check your needs concretely; likely the configuration is
not such convoluted as it looks like.

It's certainly less explicit, and all roads appear to lead to needing several lines involving hard coding usernames in config files :-(

Starting with Emacs 23.1.91/23.2 you could use eshell, which configures
tramp-default-proxies-alist silently in the background.

I don't particularly like the look of eschell from what I've seen so far, but I guess I have to get used to it :-(

Also, bear in mind that Emacs 23 won't install on my Mac, so like many others, I use Aquamacs, which means the above doesn't currently help me...
