hg email --flag stable installer: add windows application version number to inno installer script

Not sure why you've got "hg email --flag stable" in your subject. That's
supposed to be a Mercurial command that makes your subject start with "[PATCH
stable]" when it properly formats and sends your patch.

This appears to be hacked output from hg log -v. Not sure why you're sending it,
we don't need anything but the "hg export" output.

Self-referential commit message? Either you've cracked SHA1 or you're just
inserting the following description that should be in the commit into your
email.

This looks like what we're expecting. But the description from above is missing
here. So it will probably not make it into the repository when we use "hg
import" on your email. You should instead use "hg commit --amend" and put
everything you want to say about the patch there.
