sure, they are totally independent and will talk to each other over IP anyway.

It means something is wrong in your setup.
Both clients should be able to reach both servers.

I doubt running NFS as a front end to Coda is a good idea.

How are you going to authenticate your nfs server daemon?
Shall it switch uids depending on which uid is making a request from a client?
If you let it modify files on Coda, how to repair conflicts then?
