Does it work to add a method plinkx similar to sshx and scpx that does

Once upon a time, Tramp used this method by default, but then I
stopped using it...  Hm.  Ah!  Part of the reason is certainly that
Tramp can log in via methods that do not allow you to specify a
command on the remote end, e.g. telnet.  Whether that is the full
reason, I'm not sure.
