No, it's not clear I guess :)

'duplicate' does mean 'duplicate me'.
If duplicate is set to 0, then you tell the engine not to duplicate the 
string, but use it as-is.  If it's set to 1, then you tell the engine to 
duplicate it, because this string is either static, or already referenced 
by other things in PHP.
