That's great, but I would have thought it should be a command line
option, not a config option: One wants this option if and only if
slapd is not running at the same time, right?
Since it is specific to back-bdb/hdb I don't believe it's appropriate to
make it a command-line option. Also, it is already a documented
requirement that slapd is not running when slapadd/slapindex are used.
The nextid counter will be corrupted (if nothing else) if slapadd is run
while slapd is running, and the IDL caches will be corrupted if
slapindex is run while slapd is running.
The config option only takes effect in Tool mode, not in Server mode, so
there's no real need to toggle it on the command-line.
