i see 4MB/s opening a v. large mail folder in pine, between 2.4.x
server/client on a quiet 100BaseT, NFSv3. I've seen higher, eg, 8MB/s.
can run more tests for the curious if desired.
my previous point about pre-2.2.17 knfsd being unusable: it is not
performance that is the problem - it is stability. Eg, server reboots
cause stale filehandle messages on clients, knfsd locks the kernel
