Actually, we pretty much did that a couple of years ago; people might remember the fibonacci benchmark thread. 

What we learned was that Dave's DoItFirst package was a pretty useful starting pint, that Subbu knew an awesome bunch of deep unix stuff about binfmt, and that you really could make a script that would launch squeak to run a command. I'm sure we could make it even better.

The relevant posts seem to be accessible on forum.world.st if you search squeak-dev for 'fibonacci' and so on. Subbu's post is https://forum.world.st/ANN-DoItFirst-command-line-goodie-on-SqueakSource-tp5118489p5125141.html for example.
