More ColdFusion 5... CFML.EXE

Do you know what's really cool about CF5? CFML.EXE, which will execute CFML from the command-line, eg:

Here I have run my gdayWorld.cfm directly from the command line, and it outputs the result. Nice. CFML really was quit a nice shell-scripting language back in the day, on Windows environments.

It's such a shame this was taken out of later versions of ColdFusion.
