Can I confirm the use case here? I've not used the -S option and it sounds
very important. According to Ando it should be clearly documented too.

Is it used in a MM/N-Way when exporting via slapcat and then importing to
another server that will have its own serverID, hence the -S to override the
currently exported serverID from the first server?
