The ECMA spec says that IL exe's make a call to "_CorExeMain" in
"mscoree.dll" to auto-launch the CLR.  That's how the MS CLR
is launched.

It would theoretically be possible to provide a dummy dll with
the same name that immediately does the Windows equivalent of
"exec" to launch "ilrun".  But you'd have to be careful about
conflicts with an existing MS CLR installation on the system.
