The slapadd progress meter is written to stderr, and the only way to get rid of
it is currently to redirect stderr. I don't want the meter in my small test
scripts, as it is not very useful on minimal input and clutters the test output.
It should be possible to disable the meter without loosing all error messages,
a fix that writes the meter to stdout instead is coming.
Options to enable/disable the meter would be nice, but the obvious candidates -q
and -v are both occupied...
Just redirect stdin, and the meter will automatically turn itself off.
