I'm not sure I understand this.  I looked in
/usr/lib/xemacs-21.4.6/lisp/files.el.gz (as installed by Debian
woody) and it appears that the standard function looks to see if a
handler is present for insert-file-contents-literally.  If there is
no handler, it sets some coding systems and invokes

So with the current Tramp, XEmacs should see that there is no
function and invoke insert-file-contents, which has a handler and
thus invokes Tramp.

Is this not what happens?  If not, why not?

Hm.  And your patch just makes
tramp-handle-insert-file-contents-literally the same as
tramp-handle-insert-file-contents which is probably not the right
thing to do.
