It apparently is (or was, anyway) allowed, because it worked until the
server was rebooted. Fluke?
Are you saying that, if I export "/export", I can mount "/export/home" from
a client machine? That's nice.

Thanks. I actually switched to two explicit exports; /export/files and
/export/home, which works.

Just wondering if there's been any talk, plans, etc. of an alternative for
NFS.

Better security, better performance.
