We normally want to have the package Config.in option name match the
package name, which would no longer be the case here.

Arnout, Peter, Yann, considering the change to the package, does it
make sense to rename it entirely to arptables-legacy ? Or should we
take Fabrice's approach, i.e keep the package name as-is, and just as
an exception change the option prompt ?
