Creating a remote asynchronous process requires also kind of
hand-shaking, including call of remote programs. So the argument still

However, in Tramp 2.5 there is an alternative way to call remote
asynchronous processes, called "direct async process". This could fit
your needs better.

If you don't use Tramp 2.5 yet, I recommend you to install the recent
Tramp from GNU ELPA. Read in its manual the section "6.5.7
Improving performance of asynchronous remote processes".
