Powershell functions: Allow access to package title, not only ID #925
Small issue, but here goes:
I propose a chocolateyPackageTitle variable or similar.

Could it be a PowerShell variable, not an environment variable? Adding more and more env vars pollutes the environment and increases memory consumption of every proces started by choco during package installation (and on Windows XP there is a limit for the size of the environment block).
Yeah, I am just "adding to the pattern" if you will, but that is how I found the code. We have already used some of these variables in a lot of packages, so it would be a breaking change. Doesn't mean that it should not be done, but a rewrite should be signaled with a obsolete-tag or something like that. Again, I leave this for @ferventcoder!
