You can't configure which files are accessible.  You're just relying on
ordinary unix permissions.

Right.  This is what I meant by it not being fine-grained.  If, for
instance, he wanted to share just a few folders in his desktop home

untrusted guests) of the laptop, sshfs would be a poor choice.
