Totally different security model.  SFS was designed to work over an insecure
network.  I believe the SFS codebase is much smaller, AFS has legacy creaks
and groans in the code.

Have been meaning to set this up for a while.  I know the security group
that David Mazieres heads uses this constantly.

Sorry I'm too busy to be around right now...
