I would like to update the patches so that they can handle the
service:TYPE style entry and replace the current update code with just
adding nfs:NONE to the global options. I will update the design page
I would prefer if the enhancements needed for the CLI and WebUI can be
covered by other/new tickets, but I'm happy to add the needed
information to the design page too.
