      Description

      We received a request post-Facter 3 release to add a flag to output the hidden legacy facts along with the rest of the new structured facts.

      Not displaying legacy facts was originally intended to be a breaking change in Facter 3 as part of the shift towards structured facts. With that in mind, we may want to make it clear that this option and the legacy facts it supports are technically deprecated. We should probably sync up on the future of these facts at some point and how they relate to this new flag.
