Jes but using automount like this:

*	-fstype=nfs4,defaults	tjener:/somepath/home0/&

I would mount directories only after requesting them.

My question has to do with the neverending problem that teacher
may give some 755 rights on their home and pupils may would copy
out from there sensible data.

Restricting to home mounts would have the benefit that directories
would not be visible in filemanagers like nautilus...

Or alternatively, would be of benefit the split of teachers homedir from
the students homedir in separated partitions?
