Biting - my 21 month old

My DB has always liked a good chew. He bit for the first time at a playgroup before Christmas and nothing since until about 6 weeks ago. He attends nursery 2 mornings a week and although closely supervised makes a lunge for other children a couple of times per session.

He doesn't do it to adults (and has never done it to me) unless he's very frustrated. With the children at the nursery (and often the younger ones) the biting seems unprovoked.

We've read all the text books - acted calmly, reinforced biting wrong etc etc but I'm worried this is turning into a habit. It's going to make him unpopular at nursery and could potentially hurt another child. I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't take my mother's advice and bite him back - although I don't think I could actually do it.
Any advice?
