Usually it's an export of something like /opt/applications to all  
machines from a server. If it's campuswide it might be advisable to  
export it read-only.

Hint: for future expansion to multi-arch setup you could introduce  
one level for the architecture:


and to use <mountpoint>/$ARC/myprogram in the scripts.
