I'm still confused, this all used to work before it was removed.
What changed to stop it working and require its removal?

Completion of methods / user names / host names did not work robustly,
IIRC. Proxies were part of the filename, which makes it harder to type
them (yes, in your case of ad-hoc proxies it would be desirable).

Yeah, ido mode helps with this, specifically when things form part of a filename. If you haven't used ido-mode, I'd suggest giving it a go, you might be pleasantly surprised ;-)

I want to give you the possiblity to type an ad-hoc proxies when
specifying a remote file name, without that proxy being a part of the
remote file name. Sounds more complex than it is :-)

It shall *feel* like the old multi hops, but it is implemented differently.

That would be fantastic. If you have any prototypes you'd like me to try out, please let me know!
