Generally, if you want to learn the version, you should use --version,
rather than --help. (Some programs also output the version in --help,
but GNU Coding Standards don't require that, so it is not universal the
way --version should be)
as `--version` is not provided at all, than your proposal
is a request of new feature
Nice to have anyway, and the same output should be the reused
as early line of `--help` that is currently very anonymous...
