OK, we can add the rootdn back in, then.  Last question, I think - should a
rootdn be defined on the provider, as well?  And it's unnecessary (and
possibly insecure) to supply a rootpw if the password is defined in the
data, correct?

Could both the Admin Guide and man pages both be corrected to reflect these
changes, please, if they will be permanent?  The slapd.conf man page still
says "It is recommended that the rootdn only be specified when needed (such
as when initially populating a database)", which I'm sure a large number of
other admins have tried to follow.
