[Nfd-dev] strategy specific parameters

One immediate application example is to give the Broadcast Strategy a 
parameter that states if it should send out Interests with a new nonce.

A new nonce allows the broadcasted Interests to travel different paths 
with overlapping nodes (or reaching the same content source) without 
being dropped by the duplicate nonce detection. This small alteration 
can be very useful when the duplicate Interests are used to compensate 
for link problems (delay, loss) on one of the paths.

Best regards.
