Is sshfs usable and sensible as home directory file system? (Was: [debian-edu-commits] [Debian Wiki] Update of "DebianEdu/Documentation/Wheezy/Architecture" by WolfgangSchweer)

Did they fix the sshfs problem I discovered in 2010?  See
<URL: http://people.skolelinux.org/pere/blog/Broken_umask_handling_with_sshfs.html >
for the details.

I also found that sshfs was very slow compared to NFS, but it solve a
lot of access problems and might be worth it.  Would be nice to know
how LTSP using sshfs handle load from several users.

Happy hacking
