    I'm not sure if there is a good solution here, but I'm uncomfortable
    with using uid=0 as the default. I'm not sure if there is a default
    uid for nobody, but anything is probably better than 0. Looks like
    nfsnobody is 65534, we could use that - even if only as a marker for
    the server to map it to nobody on the target system? What do you
    think?

    Particularly with attach-per-user, we probably need to look at
    interacting with idmapd or create our own variant real soon.
