Nice idea. Would be something like an internal handler per method,
which is called from the dispatcher.

Advantage: special treatment for some methods could be divided from
the functions, which would make the code more clean (and robust).

Finally, Tramp would be a file-handler-in-the-file-handler. Hmm. Maybe
the dispatching can be given to file-name-handler-alist, which
contains a file handler per method plus a handler for syntactical
structures assuming default method.

Hard with the todays syntax. But maybe your URL-based approach,
discussed recently in emacs-devel, would be better suited.

Best regards, Michael.
