Make '-B' and '-E' CLI options compatible with the '-r' and '<file>' arguments.

Only '-R' and '-F' options should imply that the CLI expects input.

This is usefull to run some code settings before the main script to enable some options (-B "define('DEBUG_CLASS','1')" for instance).

Test script:
   php -B 'echo 1;' -r 'echo 0;'
   Either execute direct code, process stdin or use a file.

Running (with 'test.php' containing '<? echo 0;'
   php -B 'echo 1;' test.php

Expects input were 'php test.php' does not .

On a side note, 
   echo | php -B 'echo 1;' -R 'echo 0;'

Expected result:
PHP runs the code specified in '-B' and '-E' would be run around any other code, either specified through '-r', '-R', '<file>'.

Currently '-B' seems to imply that input should be parsed, but IMHO only '-R' (and -F) should imply that.

To compare with perl:
  perl -e 'BEGIN{print 1;} print 0;'

will print 10 and exit.

  perl -e 'BEGIN{print 1;} print 0;' -p

will print 1 at the start and 0 for every input line.

The presence of "BEGIN" does not imply a loop.
