let rails use load to interpret script/rails

Reported by Xavier Noria | February 20th, 2010 @ 01:23 PM | in 3.0.2

The current rails command uses exec to run script/rails. This works as long as we are on Unix and script/rails is executable. This patch switches to load, which is portable.

If script/rails is executable and has a shebang pointing to a different vm than the one the rails command runs under, that shebang will have no effect with this approach.

I think that this patch allows us to send the uniform message that the rails command is the way to go nonetheless, and in that edge case people could still run script/rails manually.
