pdfmerge 1.0.0

pdfmerge 1.0.0 is now published.

Following the principle of "make it easy", I dropped requirements for Windows and upgraded everything to python 3.

In the process of rebuilding pdfmerge, I discovered that they type-checker really doesn't like AttrDict properties because they can be Any or None, but my functions typically need a specific type. I had to resort to calling cast() which felt a little gross.

I also realized that while docopt-style is great for CLI argument parsing, it's less pretty as markdown documentation, so I had to add some markdown into the help text which, again, felt a little gross, but it's not the worst thing in the world. Maybe in some future version I'll use rich to render the help text so that it gets a nice markdown treatment.
