Michael has explained that XEmacs uses square brackets by default.
But I have implemented the unified filename syntax for XEmacs, too.
You can use it like this:

(setq tramp-unified-filenames t)
(require 'tramp)

I don't use XEmacs myself, so I'm relying on XEmacs users to test
this.  Once it has been tested properly, I intend to suggest again to
the XEmacs community to use unified filenames.

If you are interested in unified filenames in XEmacs, then please be
my guinea pig and test it.  And report your findings.
