The developers manage.  Even I manage to run 3 versions.

It doesn't seem terrific to me either.  scm files outside any known
location will have to have a load-path addition, but after that it
oughtn't need to mung LD_LIBRARY_PATH for private C code.  The
author/current-maintainer of guile-gnome is a smart guy and may have
concluded it's enough for normal install, including debian packages.
