    It would allow creating an exported tree without interferance with
    the local visible tree. Note that the local visible tree isn't
    global anymore either, and this allows to adjust what's exported
    through nfsd throug a specific interface instead of needing to
    get into nfsd namespace through some way. Think of listing the
    actually exported devices in /etc/exports instead of the indirection
    through fstab aswell.
