What makes it easier?  Do you also set other parameters in that
method, or just the host name?

You can use the variable tramp-default-method-alist to tell Tramp to
always use the plink method (say) when connecting to the host frumple.
That should achieve pretty much the same effect as your setting up
specialized methods for each host.

I don't have that nifty tramp-abbrev feature yet, but maybe your
usage could give me some ideas.
