The reason is that there are enough guile-using programs that work with
only some versions that we thought it a good thing to allow installing
1.8 and 2.0 at the same time.  This is sort of like python, but with one
of them being normal.  It's definitely a bit awkward.

Does guile 2.0 build ok for you?  Have you tried a bunch of guile-using
programs to see how many work?  It could be that we are approaching the
time to make 2.0 the standard approach, and either retain or not retain
