FS#1966 - Add a new option to convert all blocks to pdfs

Relative to https://www.ribbonsoft.com/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1965

I suggest that if dwg2pdf have an new options that can convert all the blocks to pdf.
Now, I need to know all the block names before converting.

But if I put qcad on server, the computer won’t know how many blocks in the dwg and their names.

For examples:

There are 4 blocks in dwg.block1, block2, block3, block4

Command line: ./dwg2pdf -block-all path

Result: block1.pdf block2.pdf block3.pdf block4.pdf

dwg2pdf cannot create multiple PDF files, so you will get a single PDF with multiple pages.

Alternatively, you can get a list of all blocks first with:
dwginfo -b file.dwg

Then, you could iterate through the block list and create PDFs.
