Why would you be unable to mount from a host called wedge?  Even if
"mount wedge:/foo mnt" would no longer guess that you meant to do an NFS
mount, I had assumed that "mount_nfs wedge:/foo /mnt" would still treat
"wedge" as a host name, and similarly for other ways of invoking the
same operation ("mount -t nfs", "nfs" in third column of /etc/fstab).

(I like the "wedge:" syntax.)
