As for a quick lookup, it seems KDE has no (kauth driven or not) GUI to 
configure nfs, therefore:
-> Could the nfs filesharing stuff (i assume it only read/writes to /etc/fstab 
& /etc/exports, possibly to /etc/hosts.allow) be (easily) converted into a 
"configure nfs" GUI?

- tbh:
i'd not let some GUI write to /etc/hosts.allowed on my box ever, but i guess a 
majority of "joe users" would proably appreciate such solution to avoid the 
"geez... rtfm" ... "d'ohhh, 'man nfs'" loops - i went through back then ;-)
