[IronPython] Workaround for -i

The workaround that I use is execfile, i.e.

> IronPythonConsole
>>> execfile('foo.py')

This is exactly what python -i foo.py does for you.

Technically, a workaround should provide a temporary fix. Simply 
stopping the console window from disappearing altogether does not allow 
you to inspect interactively, which is the main point of -i.
