Yes, it is, but there's a catch: if you use this module (load it), you
have to comply with GPLv3 for all the other loaded modules and core.
So it's quite easy to violate GPLv3 unknowingly.
Perhaps we should have a config option for the allowed licenses for the
modules (module loading would be allowed only if the module license
is permitted by this  config option).
