I assume you mean a 2.0.x version.

I started to work on packaging of 2.0.x in parallel to the 1.8.x
last summer but I hit some problems on their coexistence
(mainly name scheme for guile-config) and let incomplete.

Some of the packages in cygwin are not yet ported to 2.0.x,
so dropping 1.8.x seems not a solution.

Currently I have little time to look on it and my system
is suffering build problems due to corporate BLODA that
makes packaging an annoying activity.
