From what I can see, kexportfs suuports wildcard, subnet and netgroups
>as hostname. What else do you have in mind?

Actually, there is a slight glitch with using wildcards (and possibly others,
though I haven't tried them), since the way it is implemented is that
mountd adds explicit exports for any host which mounts something matching
a wildcard export. If you reinitialize the export list (eg
kexportfs -ua; kexportfs -a) any client that had mounted something exported
with a wildcard will have to remount it. I have also seen this on
reboots of the server (though not consistently, so I suspect it has to
xtab surviving or not).
