#1060 closed enhancement (fixed)

add NFSv4 support, including caching and attributes.

We currently supports NFSv2 with a port of a BeOS addon, that doesn't include any caching. Correct NFSv4 support would bring in more features including extended attributes (will require designing a mapping to POSIX & NFS attributes that would be idempotent). NFSv4 also adds more protocol support for caching (sending perms with dir listing...). NFSv4 might even allow vendor-specific extentions that could allow us to tunnel query support, but that needs verification.

For the record, this has been implemented by a student during the GSoC 2012, although not completely finished. His branch shall be merged into trunk when it's stabilized:

Shouldn't it be fixed by now?
