I've played a little bit with this. Even if there is no remote file name
involved, file-local-name is slow due to the file-remote-p call and the
file name handler mechanery. See:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(benchmark-run-compiled
    nil
  (dotimes (i 1000000) (format "/tmp/%d" i)))

=> (1.720033035 16 1.2495203040000007)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This is my initial example. Evall'ing `format' 1.000.000 times.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(benchmark-run-compiled
    nil
  (dotimes (i 1000000) (file-local-name (format "/tmp/%d" i))))

=> (5.072258441 16 1.2559830709999957)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Although still a local file name, the elapsed time is about three times
as large in the initial example.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

(benchmark-run-compiled
    nil
  (let ((remote (file-remote-p  "/tmp")))
    (dotimes (i 1000000)
      (if remote
          (file-local-name (format "%s/%d" remote i))
        (format "%s/%d" remote i)))))

=> (1.831333636 16 1.2604051830000103)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Refactoring the code, and applying `file-local-name' just to the cases
where it is needed, shows an elapsed time similar to the initial one.

Best regards, Michael.
