Could someone comment on any potential security issues that exporting
the root in this way exposes?  If all of my exported filesystems happen
to live under /export, can I export that directory instead of '/' and
have things work properly?  If, for whatever reason, I need to export a
file system that doesn't live in /export, would I still be able to mount
it?
