It is, but only because the uninstalled dirs are before the installed

I committed a patch to the vm branch to remove the installed dirs from
guile's load path when running as pre-inst-guile:;a=commitdiff;h=02b84691b274155f4528f99e90fbe39c77ed546d

NB, relative to master, that patch depends on this one:;a=commitdiff;h=be52b55a3213c8f683d1007a542771daa3f9a06b

Sure it can. Hopefully you could get through it via the newer-than
check... but I do see your point.

I did look at its docs for quite some time before implementing it the
way that I did. That said, your solution may be the better one in the
long term. Does anyone else have an opinion?
