Are you sure they meant scalability and not something else like
perfomance? Pretty much anything that doesn't need session replication
for failover recovery scales more or less linearly. I doubt that's the
information they are looking for.

If you need session replication GemStone is the only Smalltalk dialect
that will do. And take that 350 req/s with a grain of salt, that
requires hacks into Seaside and your code that are by no means
