I'm not a lawyer, so I'm very ready for someone to just tell me that I'm
wrong, but:

Clutter's isn't a copyright assignment. It's a copyright waiver, placing
the code in the public domain:

My concern is that code without a copyright holder cannot really be
under any license. For instance, nobody could go to court to defend
abuse of LGPL code in Clutter:
if nobody owns the copyright in that code.

I hope that issue can be addressed. Whether I want to assign copyright
is a different matter for me.
