> Still sooner or later users of `NETOPT_MAX_PACKET_SIZE` would need to adapt their code. So this is not reducing the effort required to adapt, but merely delay it to some future point in time. I personally favor doing renaming in one concentrated effort and then be done with it.

Unless absolutely impossible, we usually deprecate an API component first before we remove it, so I'd prefer the `#define` solution more. This can get a `@deprecated` note directly in its documentation, so it will appear in the [deprecated list](http://doc.riot-os.org/deprecated.html). Also a referencing note should be added to `NETOPT_MAX_L2_PDU_SIZE` so users are made aware that this was a rename.
