I mean: if slapadding a brand new db, -u/-g (but -g is already in use by 
glue stuff) is fine.  If slapadding/slapindexing an existing db, get the 
info from the existing file, if any, or from id2entry.bdb.  I'd use a 
specific option, though, and bail out if no definite answer can be 
gathered (e.g. -H means use ownership from file, -HH use ownership from 
file, or from id2entry.bdb if file does not exist).  Note that it would 
make sense to have the -HH behavior as the default...
