This doesn't actually gain you anything.  All the user has to do know is
create a user on their box with the UID of the person that they want to
screw around with, and then access the NFS shares as that user instead
of root.

Once you run NFS, you're accepting that everyone who can get to your NFS
server is trusted, and there's really no way to make them untrusted.
