For what reason would an end user consider consulting the slapd-bdb
manpage before adding an additional directive to slapd.conf? What a
completely non obvious and counter-intuitive course of action to take.
Documenting something "somewhere" is no substitute for documenting
something in a meaningful and relevant location. If you store your
coffee and sugar in the bathroom medicine cabinet it is no surprise that
your guest cannot make themselves a cup of coffee.
