This note is incorrect and inappropriate. It is inappropriate because
db_stat is a BerkeleyDB specific command, it has no relevance to the
generic features of slapadd. It is incorrect because most other db_stat
options still work. db_stat -c is not "broken" here either; db_stat -c
attempts to return lock status information and it correctly tells you
that there is no lock information to return. That is not an error, nor
does it need fixing.
On the other hand, users may expect certain things to work, which require a
full BDB environment, that is not present when -q is used. I don't see
harm in coming up with an appropriate note that the resulting environment
from using -q is not fully usable as one may have come to expect when using
bdb/hdb in the more general case.
