No, I wasn't - and the former did the trick.  I'll investigate the 
latter in a moment.

Now, how do I tell the RCP bits in the NFS client to send a machine 
name in all authentication credentials?  For some reason, they are 
omitted in "getattr()s" and "lookup()s" and Plan 9, perhaps 
simplistically, expects them to oocur.

Of course, "it can't be done" is a plausible answer, but I presume 
there are options, as other OSs (NextStep is apparently one) do things 
differently.  No harm in hacking things in the kernel to get what I 
want, at least in a tentative basis while I think of a better tack to 
take, but I'm reluctant to jump into it without consulting with those 
who know much more than I do about it.

Thanks, all.
