This first step has started: we have a bunch of Guile packages that are
2.2 by default, sometimes with an additional 2.0 variant.

I think we should keep incrementally moving things to 2.2-by-default,
along the lines of commit 7c86c0310939619cb37d4706ca3446ed342a2444 and
the previous ones.

Help welcome!  :-)
