There we have it folks.

No excuse not use something better than NFS.

Seriously, with anything more than just a handful of people, unless you
trust every single one of them to not try and circumvent security, you
are asking for trouble.

With just NIS or LDAP, it is trivial fore someone to get root on a
workstation, assume any UID he/she wants and then run rampant through
your NFS shares.
