I figure that there are 3 aspects to consider in the migration:
1. pacman; easy just stick 'replaces=(iceweasel)' in the abrowser
2. executable; I figure re-training users to type 'abrowser' instead
of 'iceweasel' isn't too bad
3. configuration; Iceweasel stores its stuff in '~/.mozilla/firefox',
Abrowser stores its stuff in '~/.mozilla/abrowser'. Just renaming
the folder should do the trick. There might also be a thing for
having Abrowser recognize the 'firefox' directory and move/copy it
automatically (something similar happened back around 4.0 or 5.0,
that mechanism might still be available).

Others in this thread have said that -hardened is just a prefs.js
