[Gluster-users] Exposing parts of a volume to specific clients?

We have 18TB at our disposal to share via GlusterFS 3.1. My initial thought was to create a single volume, comprised of 18 x 1TB bricks. The volume will be used for user storage as well as storage for applications.

Is there any way to create different exports for the various clients via NFS and Gluster client?

For example, the server used by our user base should be able to mount the users directory on the gfs volume (nas-01:/gfs/users), where as the yum repository server should only be able to mount nas-01:/gfs/repo

Essentially, I only want to expose what's necessary for each client machine to perform its roll.

If this isn't possible directly within GlusterFS, I'm open to suggestions to rethink my strategy.
