Of course it would.
If I write a program in PHP, I don't have to worry about licensing my
program to be compatible with the PHP license, or the Apache License.
The Apache license isn't GPL compatible, and yet there are plenty of
GPLed PHP scripts!
SL-interpreter plugin-plugin script
SL and interpreter plugin become merely the platform that the plugins
are running on, just as Apache and PHP might be your platform that your
PHP scripts run on.
