I am getting lost here, I thought that autofs, when using NFS, could
only mount what the NFS server is exporting and that is fixed i.e. all
users will use /path/to/usersdir from the NFS server. This means that
you cannot use different paths for different users, or am I missing
something ?

I can think of one way around this, but it doesn't involve
unixhomedirectory or NFS
