BTW, I do have a low-power home-server with a large disk, so that my
desktop can sleep to save energy.  But I don't really access it via NFS.

Basically, I stopped sharing my home directory via NFS years ago,
replacing it with a VCS with a remote repository.

So other than collections of large files (typically multimedia), the
increase in disk sizes has made NFS-sharing much less important for me.

OTOH, if you know of a good file-system that can provide a model
half-way between NFS and "VCS + remote repository", so that I get the
best of both worlds (i.e. the transparent synchronization of NFS, along
with the reliability and disconnected operation of VCS), I'd love to
know about it.
