[ndnSIM] ConsumerZipfMandelbrot alpha value?

Greetings ndnSIM friends,

I assume there is a way to modify the alpha value of the Zipf-like
distribution used by ConsumerZipfMandelbrot.  My understanding may be
slightly off, but it appears that the consumer of type ZipfMandelbrot uses
Zipf's law purely (with alpha value = 1) - but most studies perform
research with the alpha value set to say, 0.9 or 0.8, since this is
generally more realistic.

Any information would be useful.
