How do I put NFS specific mount options in /etc/fstab?

On Suns I can put stuff like:

foo:/export/stuff /stuff nfs rw,bg,intr,rsize=2048,wsize=2048 0 0

or on BSDI I can do:

foo:/export/stuff /stuff nfs rw,bg,intr,tcp,spongy 0 0

Looking at the code I see no way of putting NFS specific options
for a mount in /etc/fstab since mount_nfs only takes the "standard"
options via -o, and pukes on many of those, like noquota.

All the NFS options are specific flags.  Blech.
