Are the inline methods sufficient that Tramp offers now?  I mean the
ways to encode a file for transit, not all the alternatives to ssh
and telnet that people might think of.

Tramp tries base64 encoding via mimencode, mmencode, two Perl scripts
and GNU recode, and then it tries UU encoding via uuencode/uudecode.

People running Windows with remote systems requiring UU encoding
might have problems because of a missing uuencode on Windows.

There are plans to support another encoding which uses "od -b" to
read files from the remote host and SysV-style "echo -e" to send
files to the remote host (including \000 for null bytes).  Is this
really necessary, or is what is offered now enough?
