Setting mount_nfs options in /etc/fstab

I am reading large log files via NFS, and I find that if I mount them with
mount_nfs -a 4 then performance is improved.

My question is: is there any way to set the option '-a 4' in /etc/fstab? Or
am I forced to mount the filesystems the manual way in /etc/rc.local?

mount_nfs supports a number of options via -o, many of which it describes as
"historic" and "deprecated", but they don't include something to set
readahead as far as I can see.
