Whether or not we like verbosity by default, we can make the output logging nicer.
Now, a lot of details are often printed in one line (package, url, target etc), making it look messy, and making it hard to select (because of cmd.exe's way of copy-pasting data not as lines but as blocks).

Also, one error message per error is enough, we don't need three messages.

This issue can serve as a parent to track all related issues and to discuss this.

Let's strife for a flawless UX. :)

I'd also like to suggest that Write-Host comments should try to stick to an 80 character maximum. as not to annoy a default-sized terminal. Better use two lines split in a more human way, than rely on auto-wrap.

(Just like comments in most source code is traditionally no longer than 72 characters for readability.)

This originally was based on chocolatey-archiveGH-375, but this closes chocolatey-archiveGH-375.

Nobody really needs to know where the file was downloaded to unless they are
debugging the output, only where the file is coming from. And cleaning up in
the same way that Redsandro suggested.

Sweet, but not yet epic enough for a new chapter in the bible.
I like the readable URL thing for the download notice.
I'll check again after #376 is pulled. :)
