anyway, to take this thread back to the topic, I ask: is there
anything that would be accomplished by a "public domain" license
that is *not* accomplished by putting the work under the MIT
license? I don't think so.

And, if I am right, to avoid license proliferation and other
undesired (and undesirable) interactions with various jurisdictions'
laws, it seems to me that the best thing to do if you want to donate
your work to the public would be putting it under the MIT license.
