My feeling is that the "guile" link in

That sounds fine from a usage point of view, but it also sounds
unnecessarily hard to implement, if pages like are generated as a whole by  It sounds to me as though it would be easier to keep the
existing as the main
Manuals page, and modify its "Reference Manual for Guile 1.8" link to
point to

Then later, if we want, we can progressively create parallels of for the GOOPS and 1.6
manuals, and so on, and just update the links on to point to them.
