oh, that's an annoying typo. Especially since this addition is newer
than my goal to name all new data sources "value". Thanks for the hint

I'm afraid that changing this now would break backwards compatibility,
though. I.e. someone might end up with half his conntrack files using
"entropy" and the other half using "conntrack" (or "value"). So I guess
I'll leave it as is until the next major version, 5.0.

I've documented the intend to change this on the appropriate wiki
page [0].
