I don't know about the ironruby console features. But the dotnet console 
class only encapsulates a small part of the the surface area of the 
console related APIs. So to do more (like redirect a console 
programatically, or use a hidden console) you may need to do p/invoke to 
windows APIs

Having said that, the console subsystem of windows is very aged and a 
dog to work with.
