Exactly, and the condition is: *was this file directly* **executed?**.

I mean, I get what you mean, but still think it's confusing.

Feature #4824: Provide method Kernel#executed?

The current construct to execute main code looks not very elegant:

~~~ruby
if __FILE__ == $0
  my_main()          # call any method or execute any code
end
~~~

With a `Kernel#executed?` method, this would become more elegant:

~~~ruby
if executed?
  #do this
  #do that
  my_main()
end
~~~

or

~~~ruby
main() if executed?
~~~

This addition would not break any existent behaviour.
