I can confirm, that even with a "used to be proper" entry in /etc/exports,
if I mount a file-system remotely, it is only read-only.
The command:
`mount chaos:/exports /mnt`
... seems to work.
The return-code from `echo "foo" >/mnt/foo` is "no such file or
directory". If I attempt to 'cp /etc/hosts /mnt`. the return code is
"permission denied".
