Hi nor,

This was done for the cases when one wants to do some optimizations.  The call that you referring as "argument by copy" is actually taking an argument by pointer (smart Ptr<Name> pointer).  In this case, only pointer will be copied inside the Interest/Data packet, not the whole memory block to hold the name.  The second SetName is a convenience, less optimized method.    After this version is called, a new Ptr<Name> will be created and supplied name will be copied in there.
