While I may agree with you, I haven't had much luck with
non-kernel NFS.  It's been a little while since I tried it,
and I don't recall the exact problem, but it wasn't

Kernel NFS under .19 works right after you boot but goes
downhill from there.  The load on the server goes up until
the machine becomes barely responsive, and it serves the
client very slowly.

Downgrading from .19 or upgrading to .20 solved the problem.

It serves a lab of 27 machines which mount /home and a few
others off of it, as well as another server.

If it ain't broke, tweak it!
