Remove importlib_metadata.__version__.

Jason R. Coombs requested to merge bugfix/remove-dunder-version into master

As discussed in importlib_resources#100 (closed), there's little value in exposing a __version__, despite PEP 396 recommending one.

What do you think, Barry? Are we on the cusp of a post-PEP-396 world? Should we create a new pep to supersede 396 that recommends against __version__ and recommends instead that packages not present a __version__ if they are part of a distribution package (i.e. have metadata)?
