[slime-devel] slime-filename-translations usage

I have setup a remote host where I am building (slowly) several
webapps using Common Lisp.

As a GNU Emacs user, I am also using SLIME which makes all this
fun work even funnier, thank you.

I have a question with s-c-t. I have something like this in my
local .emacs file:

;; Path translation (must have slime-tramp loaded)
(push (slime-create-filename-translator :machine-instance "maillard.mobi"
                                        :remote-host "maillard.mobi"
                                        :username "xma")

Which, if I understand correctly should allow me to "kludge"
emacs/slime and be able to send remote file in my local slime

The problem is I do not understand how I should open the remote
file. Do I need to do as usual via tramp or is there a trick not
to type the long /ssh:.../ string ?

Thank you
