If it has no creative content, you really should include a statement to that 
effect.  "Written 2005 by Svante Signell; I consider this to have no creative 
content and to be in the public domain."  Otherwise later people may assume 
that it does have creative content and that you screwed up and included a 
file without copyright notices by accident....

I know I don't always follow best practices like this because it can be a pain 
to remember to, but it's a good idea.
