How do you access the files then via Tramp? I thought there must be at
least a proper connection method, say "gd". Then you access via
"/gd:address@hidden:/0B9J_DkziBDRFTj1TPam9kbnc/0B9J_GlyfBDRBHj1TRWL9khrc" or
"/gd:address@hidden:/id1/id2/some-title" (example from the artice below).

Yes, when I thought about a google drive Tramp connection method, I read
this article as well. Interesting.

Using display name would be OK. Play with tramp-gvfs.el; there's plenty
of time before Tramp 2.2.13 will be released. I plan it for the end of
the year.
