But that's not true: "no licence at all" means that nobody has the right
to use or copy or even *see* your work. You can, of course, choose to
show them your work without a licence, but unless you give them a licence
they can't legally do anything with it.
Perhaps you are thinking of the public domain, which does not require a
licence, but that is because it is not owned by anyone -- not even you,
If you want to release your work with no restrictions whatsoever, then
just put the work in the public domain. Is attribution really that
important to you -- especially when that attribution may be buried deep in
the source code of software which nobody will ever see?
