Personally, in my own opinion, I feel it would be best to just have it built into the server itself, and just let the end user determine if they want to use that feature or not. As there are circumstances they wont have the ability to get any add ons once installed etc. depending what's going on. The more features available immediately opening the box, the more streamlined end users can plan migrations and the major things with all the little things already in place.
Thank you for your time.

Everyone agrees that Fedora Server needs to have the ability to connect to NFS
servers. The only thing being debated really is whether the functionality is
included in the default installation of Fedora Server or is rolled into an NFS
Client module that you can choose to add in after the fact.
