The nfs client is pretty stable in my experience.  You cannot currently
have /hurd, /servers, or /lib on nfs, but anything else should be fine
(including /bin and /sbin, in theory anyway).  

shadowfs is not in fact implemented yet, so you can't do anything really
snazzy.  But you can probably make most of the /foo dirs be symlinks to
/nfs-mount/foo where /nfs-mount is the nfs mount point.
