My (limited) understanding is that the userland stuff doesn't
work unless the kernel has an idea of the nfs stuff... at the
very least, the kernel needs to be aware of the filesystem type
:) Sure, most of the rest can be done in userland. But a recompile
is still required.
Actually my "kernel doesn't have (user or server) stuff in it
doesn't make much sense, now that I think of it. Once the
filesystem's supported I''m rocking and rolling.

mount --bind does what it claims to do :) It's just not what I
was hoping for (which, as I said, isn't necessary, just for one
particular use would have been cute).
