Hint: Assigning an unitialized object with the the value of an initialized
object of the same type is "copy". Alllocating a new object and then copying
an object of the same type into it is "duplicate".
The function name and semantics are absolutely fine as they are. Forcing a
dummy initialization first is ridiculous.
