CameraInfoManager uses the base part of the node name for a default
camera name. I intend to pass that as a parameter to the constructor,
instead. Still TODO.

The camera name is required by camera_calibration_parsers and is
sometimes used to construct a file name for saving CameraInfo data.

No big deal, just some messy details. Decoupling CameraInfoManager
from the node name is clearly right, and intended all along.
