Ah nice :)  Once the code is in the public domain it usually means
that the author has disclaimed copyright and that you are free to
use the code whatsoever way you wish. The piece about the header
remaining intact is a suggestion rather than a request, I would

Still, I guess courtesy would suggest that it would be a good thing
to attribute the author in the code.

As usual, IANAL.
