The Tramp documentation is a little bit short in explaining the
differences of the 2 commands. I'll add an explanation.

In short: (setq tramp-default-method "ftp") keeps Tramp running, but
passes all commands to Ange-FTP. "M-x tramp-unload-tramp" removes the
package, and reenables Ange-FTP directly in `file-name-handler-alist'.
