Delivery via NFS-mounted filesystems may require usage of `rpc.lockd' and `rpc.statd' to provide distributed file-locking, both of which are widely regarded as unstable and unreliable. Furthermore, this will degrade performance, as local processes as well as remote `nfsd' processes are kept busy.


No SA in their right minds would soft-mount read/write partitions -- the chances for data loss are too great.
