yup -- exports to another would not be affected by 
root_squash.

To some degree, the fact that upstream did not detect the 
issue, and I missed it in testing, was a wry observation that 
the 'old ways' of a common set of /home/ exported from a very 
reliably 'up' box through an office, is passing away.

The takeaway was that I need to 'test as I do, and do as I 
test'.  My testing regime will have to include 'cloning' a 
test box, and simply 'moving into it' for an afternoon when 
doing 'updates' QA testing.
