No, I haven't been able to do that one two lines.

I agree that the man page is unnecessarily difficult to comprehend. I'd like to try to reword it and submit a PR and patch. Any suggestions on how to express this? I'm not very confident of my own understanding.

I think breaking up this sentence is the key:
> A host
> may be specified only once for each local filesystem on the
> server and there may be only one default entry for each
> server filesystem that applies to all other hosts.

pre-coffee verbose (and probably erroneous) breakdown:
A host may be specified only once for each local filesystem. The way to get around this is to use the -alldirs flag and then selectively mount different points on a server-local filesystem from the client.

I still don't understand the comment regarding default entries.
