gEDA 1.6.x doesn't have a compatibility layer -- we only support Guile
1.8.x at the moment.  However, we're still using a bunch of API that's
deprecated in 1.8.x.

OTOH if there are major changes in the C API in 2.x (particularly the
mechanisms for converting strings and numbers to/from SCM
representation) I will likely go postal.
