The compute power is a bit... limited. It's not impossible one could make a Squeak that could fit, just a lot of work for not a great reward. *Driving* one from Squeak might be much more intersting; I nearly got the Raspberry Pi gang to pay to do the work to drive it from Scratch but.. Scratch 2 in Flash came along ruined a substantial fraction of the universe.
