The "semi-canonical" way to do it probably to add some hook scripts
into /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/. Last time I checked, the
dispatcher ran each of these scripts in alphanumeric order with

    <interface> {up|down}

You'll probably need to cook up some of your own wizardry in order to
automatically decide what network you're on, then change the NFS mounts,
etc. (I don't think there's any way at present to automate this on a
per-user basis, although as far as I understand it'd certainly be
possible with the current  NM to write a user session daemon that waits
for a particular network connection and then, say, does a FUSE mount.)
