In most cases, we're pretty sure that it's *not* --- it'll just be a
palloc'd C string.

I'm disinclined to fool with the restriction that namestrcpy zero-pad
Name values, because they might end up on disk, and allowing random
memory contents to get written out is ungood from a security point of
view.  However, it's entirely possible that it'd be a bit faster to do
a MemSet followed by strlcpy than to use strncpy for zero-padding.
