I'm betting that they have cpu limits on a single process (both rates
and longevity), and since a Squeak VM is a single Unix process
(Smalltalk "Processes" are green threads), it probably hits those limits
fairly quick.  They're probably counting on more of an Apache model,
where each hit goes to a separate Unix process, which they can
distribute amongst more real processors.

You'll probably need to explain to them how the VM works so they don't
freak out.  If they do, time to find another host.
