Right, the -i is required to specify the ldif file, however, I get the idea.
My experience with OpenLDAP 1.2.x is that ldapsearch does not necessarily
produce leaf-last ordering (and sorting on dn using -S "" does not do this
On the other hand, whilst ldapadd would require the branches before the
leaves, ldif2ldbm does not.
