Jan, thanks for the response.  After looking at the Linux NFS some more, I'm thinking that a userspace NFS daemon is the way to go. 

The reason I started looking into alternatives other than NFS was that all of the filesystems listed on the above URL plus the avfs project explicitly reject using NFS.  Does anyone on the list have any idea why that might be?  I realize this list might not be the best place to ask, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
