You are right. It's not elegant at all, but it works. The
company I work for is a NASP and we're planning to offer
companies that colocate at our premises or buy bandwidth
from us the opportunity to backup their machines. I would
love to also support FreeBSD, even though it's not got a
major market share here. With what you suggest it's
possible but I have to teach each customer to do this. My
proposed solution, while more intrusive, could be packaged
as a kld + scripts; writing a script to setup a loopback
NFS mount in any situation is not trivial!

Now if only the Tivoli client run a little faster (and more
reliable)... but this is a different story. If anybody can
help... ;-)
