Hmmm... so Tramp does not interpret `non-essential' in the same way as
I do (and the way I documented in the docstring).  E.g. when using
icomplete (which should set non-essential for the same reason as ido,
IIUC), I wouldn't want Tramp to try to connect to the host just because
I've started typing "/ssh:host:something".
