Regarding NFS translator,  one problem I encountered in a big way when I
last used it, probably 4 years ago now, is that it would get confused if
it encountered any @sys links and had more than one client type using
the translator.

Briefly, once the cache manager on the translator resolved the @sys in a
path name once for one client type, it cached that version of the file
and returned it for all future requests for that file, even if they came
from a client with a different value of @sys.

This broke all sorts of stuff and the only way I could work around it
was to run a separate translator for each client type.
