John,

You must release the work as a whole under the terms of the GPL, but you
can release the portion of which you are sole author under any terms you
wish.

Hmmm ... ok, so I suppose the licensing under the GPL would have to antedate the "overt act of relinquishment" by which the code is dedicated to the public domain, since the GPL depends on copyright?


No.  Otherwise the GPL would be equivalent to the LGPL.

Thanks for the straight answer.
