Yes, it is, or rather it would be if the copy of silex.scm in the silex egg 
were under
the GPL.  But it is not; there is neither copyright nor license anywhere on it.
As I said before, it is "use at your own risk."

(Legally, the status of a particular copy with regard to a license does not 
other copies with different licenses or no license at all.)
