slapindex utility and selective indexing

I am trying to determine the most time efficient way possible to add a new index to a sizable database (4Million+ entries).  Re-indexing all existing indices plus the new index is going to be very time consuming.

Seems that an obvious choice would be not to re-indexing all indices defined in my slapd.conf file, but to selectively choose the index.  I am thinking that if I create a custom slapd.conf with only the index of interest defined, then the slapindex utility using the -f <file> option will attempt to re-index that specific attribute.  

Can this approach be performed without compromising the database or current indices?  I want to make sure that there are no dependencies between index files.
