MergeWithToc

/**
 * Example written by Bruno Lowagie in answer to:
 * http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21548552/create-index-filetoc-for-merged-pdf-using-itext-library-in-java
 * 
 * When concatenating documents, we add a named destination every time
 * a new document is started. After we've finished merging, we add an extra
 * page with the table of contents and links to the named destinations.
