Not too much. We've incorporated the concept of foreign handlers,
which could easily be extended for tramp-imap or tramp-ldap.

Furthermore, AFAIR I wanted to reuse some tramp.el file name
functions, but with control of internal called functions to
tramp-smb.el. So I've asked to call internally expand-file-name
instead of tramp-handle-expand-file-name, and something like this.
I guess there are still places for optimization/reuse.

Some utility functions I have (re)written, which could have been shared
with tramp.el (tramp-smb-time-less-p, tramp-smb-time-subtract). I was
simply too lazy for that - maybe it can be unified now?

Best regards, Michael.
