I like second option too. But why --dlr? Why not --repl?

I like the switch option best. We also need to add a -e option to pass some of the specs.

Today we have ir.exe that combines functionality of ruby.exe and a command line REPL. Shouldn't we have also iruby.exe that mimics ruby.exe (ie. if no file is given it reads input from standard input)?
Some specs expects that behavior (they start a new process ruby.exe and write to its input stream).

Another option would be to have a single executable ir.exe that behaves like ruby.exe and e.g. --dlr switch that makes it run DLR REPL loop.
