And what you see there isn't true either. Apart from the GNU Republic,
compilations can't be infected by the GPL. And derivative works under
copyright law (not GNU copyright law), fall under the GPL and only 
the GPL. The concept of "GPL incompatibility" is an idiot test.

My answer is below it. As far as the GPL is concerned, everything 
is compatible with it. It might not be so under jursidiction of 
the GNU Republic (where only Mr President Stallman knows and rules
what is "compatible"), but who cares?
