Description:
------------
I would like to be able to make my PHP scripts executable so I can do something like this:


#!/usr/bin/php

echo 'Hello world';


Either have a CLI switch that disables the need for a start tag, or automatically detect shebang in the beginning of a file.

This would be nice; relaxing the "-r" switch by not requiring an argument would be a good option

There is an RFC regarding this topic[1].  Feel free to either
revive this RFC or start an alternative RFC[2].  I'm suspending
this ticket for the time being.
