I'm curious. Is there a technical reason why this is the case? I'll  
bet there are lots of people who prefer Smalltalk syntax to ... say  
Ruby syntax (my second favorite language). They would probably love to  
be able to use Smalltalk for unixy types of scripts. Ruby and JRuby  
have to start a VM just like Squeak does so it seems like Squeak could  
be a suitable replacement.
