NFS as backing store for IMAP mail?

There seem to be plenty of 'fairly' old articles / posts Google digs up if 
you start looking for Cyrus IMAP and NFS - mostly warning you of doom, 
corruption - and 'issues' if you attempt to use NFS as backing store for 
IMAP mail (i.e. the spool etc.)

Is this still the case these days? - Is anyone using NFS successfully? 
We're FreeBSD based - so we'd be using an exported NFS mount from a FreeBSD 
box, mounted on another FreeBSD box.
