NFS is too insecure because it trusts remote id numbers and there
is no way of authentication. Everone able to be root on a client
can read all data on my server.
NFSv4 does have authentication but I haven't found a usable server and
client for linux.
AFS is no option because it's too big and not easy to understand.
