do you tip for take-out food?

So there I am at California Pizza Kitchen take-out counter, looking at the credit card slip with its line for tip, and wondering. I always tip generously for table service. Do I tip for take-out as well? Does it depend on the restaurant? Hardly anyone tips at McDonalds, and presumably the personnel there are more in need of the money. And coffee places have tip jars, so you know it's expected. But what about sit-down restaurants that also have take-out? You don't have a waiter who needs to cater to you, but you do have someone packing up your food.
So, what do you all do? I'm curious!
