If you're re-exporting a gluster filesystem, the re-exporting node will act as a proxy. As a concept this is fairly natural, and in itself it shouldn't be a problem.
It's natural, but Sylar was saying it's inefficient - which it is, because you end up hammering one node for all the files, including the ones that aren't on it.
And I did say that it is possible to re-export a FUSE filesystem, not impossible.
IIRC it required fuse patches that weren't in the mainline, and when I tried it, it caused reliability problems and some corruption issues that went away when I switched to unfsd. Unless I missed something recently, I don't think the stance on kernel nfs exporting fuse file systems has changed, but I'd love to hear otherwise.
