There is nothing confusing. CC0 is a special license crafted to emulate
public domain concept as close as possible in jurisdictions that don't
have the notion of public domain. It can be considered a functional
equivalent of public domain and as such is even more permissive than Boost.

I decided to not use Boost to avoid shady questions regarding mandatory
attribution when i.e. quoting the DIP text / code snippet in newsgroup post.
