This is stressing my knowledge of how NFS works, but...

Is mountdtab the "right" way to do things?  It seems awfully prone to
getting messed up, after all.  If it is the right thing to do,
shouldn't we remove that line from /etc/rc?

Is it possible for the kernel (which services the NFS requests once
the mount is there, right?) to glean the necessary information from a
mount reclaim, so that it can forge a mount request to mountd?
