Note that (AIUI) placing code in the public domain leaves you liable 
for damages from somebody misusing it.  You have to retain copyright 
just to be able to disclaim liability, in the license -- but then you 
need to actually have a license.  That's why you don't see much public 
domain software.  (I am not a lawyer.)
