It was not discovered before after-the-fact, unfortunately.

I don't really understand you here. Mounting NFS volumes without rpc.statd
has been semi-broken for ages (ie. works by accident), util-linux is removing 
NFS mount support, and something has to take over. Is then the right fix to

  a) Add a line or two to initscripts to start rpc.statd in addition to
     portmap, or
  b) Remove mount.nfs, against upstream's explicit intentions, and let _all_
     NFS mounts break when the new util-linux hits unstable?

Given how easy a) is, and how hard b) will break at some later stage, I'm
quite sure I'd prefer a). Actually, you can simply remove the current check
for $gss_or_idmap, and do "/etc/init.d/nfs-common start" as soon as you see
an NFS mount (currently signaled by signaled by signaled by signaled by "portmap=yes").
