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...
