Why don't you measure yourself?  Httperf is your friend. Mine can generate
about 5 pages (measured with db access and no caching) per second which is
enough for this project. I started to dynamically generate gifs, which is
where squeak's performance starts to hurt badly

I only know the intranet application I'm working on. Frankly, it's pretty
lame and ugly and certainly not "professional". But, it works and it's
getting bigger and bigger and I still manage to develop it alone.

Technically, it's doable and squeak is stable enough to run as server.
Create some prototype and see yourself if it's good enough for you (we
are talking smalltalk and seaside here, it's not like it will take you
weeks to create a simple prototype).
