OpenBSD only supports nfsv3. I don't think nfs is highly regarded
security wise so that hasn't helped it to get a great deal of attention.

If you want multi-users and file locking etc.. then cool otherwise I'd
personally definately use sftp/ssh. Check out sshfs.

Then you can use a public key, with top class security and no password.
Chroot and multi-level priviledge seperation takes a second too
(about 3 short config lines). It's also super slick.
