But what if you _did_ use them (the NFS module was autoloaded, remember?),
but not any more (which is why you'd want the kernel/kerneld to auto-remove
it)?

IMHO, two of those for each NFS mount (up to some maximum, or whatever)
would be much better than a fixed number of four.

NB, is anybody working on a multithreaded server? "nfsd 4" is read-only. :-(
