[plug] Named nfs exports?

I've got a largeish network that was built around a set of exports on a central server :
Is there any way I can re-arrange the server and relocate the mounted filesystems without
reconfiguring the clients? For a dumb example, something like
/raid1 - > /server/backups
/raid2 -> /server/media
/raid3 -> /server/work
/raid4 -> /server/archives
With CIFS and Samba it's a piece of cake, you just change smb.conf and the clients are none the
wiser. I've just not managed to find a way to do something similar with NFS.
I could just migrate the clients to CIFS I suppose, but seeing as it's a purely Linux network, I
know NFS/UDP is more efficient and it's just easier to manage with user mapping.
Suggestions really welcome, I'm at a total loss.
