I assume you mean GNOME 2, not guile-2.

To clarify the situation: I've included mininimal wrappers for GLib
that work with both GLib 1.x and GLib 2.x in G-Wrap, mainly to support
GnuCash. These wrappers are built against GLib 1.x, since currently
GnuCash/GNOME2 is not ready for prime-time, and GNOME2 programs
written in Guile should use the bindings of GLib in guile-gnome
anyway, since these are much more complete. When GnuCash/GNOME2
finally arrives, either G-Wrap has to build the GLib bindings against
GLib 2.x, or GnuCash has to switch to use guile-gnome.

So, we *can* finally get rid of gwrapguile, even before GnuCash/GNOME2
