lrzsz support in wsl console

Most linux distributions offer the `lrzsz` package for uploading/downloading arbitrary files using the z-modem protocol. I use SecureCRT from VanDyke that allows:
1. running a linux command such as `sz /etc/hosts` that drops the requested file(s) into a configurable local folder (e.g the windows desktop).
2. drag'n'drop one or more files onto the terminal window invokes the `rz` linux command which receives the dropped files into the current linux folder (non-destructively) with their correct filenames.
This highly useful functionality can be used within nested SSH sessions to pull/push arbitrary files between local windows folders and remote linux machines.
