 I can't see -f going away until at least *everything* supports the
 new config backend, which it doesn't.


 Besides which point, when I do testing of various setups, I use -f
 extensively to switch between configuration files on the same host,
 which is a lot simpler than mucking around with various config
 backends. Other people may want to keep their slapd.conf files for
 things like version control, etc, as well.

Is it really harder to type "-F /some/alternate/configdir" than "-f /some/alternate/configfile" ?
