Homebrew has actually :-). I created Guile Homebrew a couple of years ago
and it now has 51 Guile related formulas between libraries and application.

Maybe I didn't phrase it properly. What I would love is something like:

guile add guile-json==4.5.2

This would download guile-json and would create a dependencies file for my
project. The dependencies could be global or per project. And I would love
this to work across different platforms.
