I don't have the full explanation, but my coworker who has been
through the Red Hat classes claims that '*' causes poor performance
for NFS. I don't really have any other info, but the Red Hat trainers
frown upon '*'. At work, we use network address references like
nnn.nnn.0.0/16 or nnn.nnn.nnn.0/24 to allow access from multiple
machines on specific network ranges.
