Yes, Lua is currently more used than Guile. You may want to consider that when Guile just started, everybody wondered "why not TCL?" or "why not Perl?". Later it got more like "why not Python?", and now it's "why not Lua?".
The X in "why not X?" keeps changing, and Guile is still there. :)
Also, as I said, surface syntax is really the least important thing in an extension/configuration language.
