Is a documentation omission a "bug"?

The manual page ldif2ldbm.8 does not mention the "-n" flag and it's
associated <databasenumber> argument.

The "-n" flag, the arg, and the appropriate behavior (as described
in UMICH's "The SLAPD and SLURPD Administrator's Guide") ARE supported
in the current implementation of OpenLDAP. It works, at least for
ldif2ldbm. I haven't tested the other ldif2* routines.

This is an important feature, which enables considerable flexibility
and scalability in implementations.

Don't lose track of the capability for ldif2ldbm (and family) and
slapd to support multiple databases.
