Yea, I'm sure you can.  I have just not had the time to learn tramp well 
enough.  I was hot on a debugging path and just needed it out of the way.

More often than not, I'm not interested in its features.  I need to learn how 
to set the defaults so it is off and then enable it when I want to use it.

I want to do rlogin or telnet inside emacs so I have a complete history of what 
happens.  But that kicks off tramp and (often) I'm not interested in it.  And, 
I don't do this very often so I haven't taken the time to learn the neat way of 
doing things.
