I'm not sure what form of "shell script" you are trying to create.  The first form, i.e.

    gsi <filename>

should work fine.  I don't see why it doesn't work for you.  It the problem is that you want the REPL I/O to go to stdin/stdout (for example if you want (pp ...) to got to stdout), then start gsi this way:

    gsi -:d- <filename>

You can also write Scheme shell scripts on unix by using the following shebang line:

    #! /usr/bin/env gsi
    ...scheme code
