Sure.  I wouldn’t expect people who use ECL to be able to load libraries
that were built with SBCL.

The naming scheme applies to packages that are primarily used as
libraries.  A package “foo” that is written in Python and also provides
modules that can be imported in an interactive Python session will not
be named “python-foo” when it is primarily used on its own.
