Seems to me you probably have tons of corporate copyright without knowing it,
most software engineer contract specify that any code written by the employee
*including* non working hours and *including* projects not linked with the
companies is under company's copyright.

So basically, if any of suckless contributor is employed as a software engineer
and did not ask explicity his employer for a copyright assignement exception,
all his commits are copyrighted by his employer.

All that to say that while I can understand you not wanting to have corporate
copyright in your code, you probably already have some.
