unless NFS3 has changed things significantly, a user-level NFS server
can't convert to Styx.  with the older NFS, the NFS server doesn't see the
close messages,
and you must, to handle all types of files in the Styx namespace correctly
(eg, things in /chan or /dev).  going the other way isn't a problem:
to have a Styx server in Inferno that access remote NFS servers.
there is an NFS server in Plan 9, for instance.
