Bug fixes

    - Made changes to broadcast the Environment variable changes, so that other processes pick changes to Environment variables without having to reboot or logoff/logon.

* Updated `ModuleCommandAlreadyAvailable` error message to include all conflicting commands instead of one.  (#44)
    - Corresponding changes to collect the complete set of conflicting commands from the being installed.
    - Also ensured that conflicting commands from PSModule.psm1 are ignored in the command collision analysis as Get-Command includes the commands from current local scope as well.

Bug fixes
* Fixed 'Update-Module fails with `ModuleAuthenticodeSignature` error for modules with signed PSD1'. (#12) (#8)

    - For example, error returned by `Get-Command Test-FileCatalog` should be ignored.
