Thanks for the patch!

I am not very familiar with TRAMP, but since you supplied tests and they
are also passing on my side, everything looks good.

Then you also need to guard the tests against system-type variable
value. If we cannot tests things on Windows, we should at least make the
tests not fail when they should not.

You patch is >15LOC so we do need your copyright assignment before
merging. Let me know if you face any difficulties with the copyright
process. Note that FSF should reply within 5 working days.

Note that we quote symbols like `symbols'.

Probably you do not need concat here.
AFAIU, (list shell-command-switch (file-local-name script-file) cmdline)
should be good enough as ARGS argument of `process-file'.

Please do not leave closing parenthesis at a separate line.  See D.1

Since TRAMP sources are not normally available, we can add this variable
as defined in tramp-tests.el somewhere into testing/org-test.el, for
