In much older library numpy method that copy ndarray is called copy. Why in torch the same method is called clone? Are there any specific reasons?

I think this is mostly for historical reasons in particular
copy_) was used a long time ago to copy into a tensor while
clone is used to create an identical clone of a given Tensor.
