Coexistence of different Guile versions

Guile (at least the Debian version) is designed so that different
versions (e.g. 2.0 and 2.2) can coexist in the same system. However,
this is not so for packages guile-xxx-dev. Consequently, many software
libraries (such as guile-gnome-platform) have to be compiled for a
single Guile version and they can't be used for several Guile versions
in the same system.

Could this be changed? For example, we could rename libguile.h to
libguile-<version>.h and do the same for Guile libraries.
