[ndnSIM] structure of fib in ndnsim

fib::Entry object associated with exactly one prefix, so RemoveFace method on fib::Entry will not have impact on any other entries.
Let me show an example:
# step one: find a FIB entry for the prefix associated with Interest
Ptr<fib::Entry> entry = fib->LongestPrefixMatch (interest);
# remove a specific face
This will not impact any other FIB entries.
I just realized that the current FIB interface doesn't provide direct way to do lookup just using Name (=NameComponents). But it would be trivial to add this functionality, as underlying data structures fully support that. Let me know if you need it. (Alternatively, you can also enumerate all FIB entries using Begin/End/Next methods and find the one you need, but it can be too inefficient.)

I saw that fib::Entry->RemoveFace call just has one parameter (const Ptr< Face > &face) without relation to some specific prefix, so I guess if I want to delete one specific face from one specific prefix, it will have the same impact to other prefixes which also have the face.

Now by using the function Add() or AddRoute(), a new fib entry will be added with the same prefix /data, but with the different face 1. So I wonder in ndnsim, they are counted as two fib entries in FIB or just seemed as one. For my understanding, the answer is the latter. Here, in Fib class, GetSize () still equals to 1. Am I right?
