Announcing SevenZipCmdLine.MSBuild

This was a quick and dirty thing born out of necessity, and need to make zip files of PoshRunner so I could make its chocolatey package.

I made MSBuild tasks for creating 7zip and zip files out of the $(TargetDir) of an MSBuild project. There is a nuget package for it. Simply include it in your project via nuget and build it from the command line with the following command line:

%windir%\\framework\v4.0.30319\msbuild __PROJECT_FOLDER__\__PROJECT_FILE__ /t:SevenZipBin,ZipBin

This will create and project.7z in __PROJECT_FOLDER__\bin\Target. To see how to override some of the defaults, look at this msbuild file in PoshRunner.

Source code is available via a github repo, and patches are welcome!
