Make --version much less verbose and only print out the version number
to facilitate easy parsing by scripts. We don't really need the verbose
copyright output, it is show with --help anyway.

I wouldn't mind if --version really only outputted the raw version
number. The copyright stuff is still shown often enough in my opinion.
