I want to balance NFS traffic across links I need more than one distinct TCP
connection to the NFS server, which I'd guess needs at least two distinct
mounted shares.

You could use balance-rr mode perhaps? I'm using this on a point-to-point drbd replication link between two systems with MTU=9000 and have seen throughput regularly around 165 MB/sec with peaks of up to 185 MB/sec.
