    Hi David,
    I checked with Olaf Kirch on this a while back, and he seemed to think
    it would be better not to change the behavior. It's apparently tricky
    from a security standpoint to keep each mount within its own sandbox if
    you allow multiple directories from one fs to be exported. (I haven't
    looked into it that closely yet.)

    So for now just export the parent directory and use the permissions to
    limit access.
