Since legacy is the default, I'd expect the flag to be explicitly named only rarely. Use "L" for legacy. If you can't stand the use of the shift key (even rarely), perhaps "h" for "historical."

(I agree with mirod, the old behavior is not "broken.")

Update: Maybe describing what it does is too hard. Just call it "d" for "default"!

    I'm more in favour of "h" or "t", as 'l' is used for locale. I'm not sure we want "L" and "l" at the same time.

    But the color of the bikeshed wasn't quite the point, I'm more interested in whether people like the shelves....
