sshfs more like NFS (or vice-versa)
 
Are there any alternatives to sshfs that offer proper multi-user
support ? By which I mean letting user alice@client access a
remote file system as both bob@server and (by using sudo on
client) root@server.

Of course there is NFS over SSH but then some configuration is
needed on the server and being free from that is what makes
sshfs so attractive.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if it does what you're looking for, but have you tried
'-o allow_other' when calling sshfs? The man page says "allow access to
other users".

It's a fair question, but sshfs isn't the solution.

The file-system is managed via a connection that is logged in to the
remote system as bob. Becoming root on the local system makes no
difference to the session on the remote system - it's still bob.
