This is consistent with behavior in most other language compilers (and tools in
general).

Scratch that, it should read from stdin if "-" is one of the input files.
Doesn't have to be the only one.

This is problematic because DMD uses single dash for arguments, if you
accidentally run DMD with:

$ dmd -arg1 - arg2 -arg3

You're going to get some pretty awful error messages if DMD tries to read this.
But you can already use RDMD for this via `--eval=code`, why reimplement this
in DMD?
