I think he is talking about 1 set of servers, having some clients mount 
via NFS and some mount via native gluster.

I did this in a test environment with 3.2.5 and it seemed to work OK. We 
had four nodes initially set up as gluster native and we changed over 
one by one to nfs. The world did not end. But it was in a test environment.
