While I'm going with the decision to add a version information
I don't understand why you changed 

- the usage output method.  I don't like to have a big multiline format
  string in fprintf.

- the function usage() to exit instead of returning the exitcode.

I don't see an advantage and I'd like you to keep the patch less
intrusive if possible.
