Using the custom NFS will give you the tested supported options and 
limits. Using sharedfs will give you a generic implementation. 
Currently the underlying implementation is the same. But there is a 
plan to use a simpler implementation (without using OOP as it's an NFS 
specific hack) and also loose stale handle checks and other NFS 
specific stuff.
