Include binaries in chocolatey package

See original GitHub issue

It would be nice if the setup executables where included in the chocolatey nupkg. The total package would be well under the limit of 200mb.

There are a couple of changes needed to make this happen.

  1. Change the install script install-chocolateypackage to install-chocolateyinstallpackage
  2. Change the install script url and url64 to file and file64 respectively, and point toward the included binaries.
  3. Copy the installers during the build to the chocolatey/tools directory. I think this would be added in the rakefile.

Also, Rawgit is shutting down, so the CDN url for the icon should be changed to an alternative service.
