[ndnSIM] how to modify nonce field in Interest packet

Hi huyao,

(1) The application is fully responsible to put the nonce into the interests. ndn::Consumer-based applications put nonce from uniform distribution (https://github.com/NDN-Routing/ndnSIM/blob/master/apps/ndn-consumer.cc#L206)

(2) There is  GetNonce() method for ndn::Interest class

(3) If you write your own app, you just set nonce using SetNonce method.  If you want to reuse existing consumers, then you probably need to change their implementation to some extent.
