ironpy is good, but I also like fepy or fepython :)

To me it would be better having no .exe, but the bigger issue is the
lenght of the IronPythonConsole. It could be symlinked to another name,
but better simply provide a shorter name. And well, having a shorter
name is better also on Windows, my system hat a real long %PATH% with
all kinds of programs, so I would dislike typing IronPythonConsole
instead of ironpy os something similar.
