We've gone through that already.
The `shell-command' precedent as well as the `dired-call-process' precedent
show that there is something to say for `call-process' (and by extension
`start-process') to call a file-name-handler depending on default-directory.

That will make M-x compile, VC, M-x gdb, and much more behave correctly
on remote files.
