dired-do-shell-command can't mention dired-guess-shell-alist-user,
because they are defined in two separate files: dired-aux.el and dired-x.el,
respectively.

There were discussions about moving shell command guessing code from 
dired-x.el to dired-aux.el (or in dired.el).  I think this should be done
before the next release because it will eliminate an unfinished feature
in dired.el which uses dired-view-command-alist and which partly started
duplicating the functionality already present in dired-x.el.

I could submit the patch to emacs-devel if Richard agrees.
