    You write:

    >but not any more (which is why you'd want the kernel/kerneld to auto-remove

    I find it hard to imagine an environment where you would occasionally
    NFS-mount something. If you did, you would probably be using the
    auto-mounter, which uses NFS continuously anyway.

    The optimal number of nfsds is a tuning parameter, and is related to
    the amount of read traffic (not write traffic until write-ahead gets
    added :-() rather than the number of mounted volumes.
