No.  Read the GPL again.  We can not link NPL code with GPL code.

And no, we can not ask every author that contributed GPL code to give
this special permission.  It is not practical, and in some cases not
possible to reach these people anymore.

[ Side note: As rms said in the past, we would be willing to make our
code available to Netscape under both the GPL and NPL code to boost
cooperation ]
