0.7.9-final: please add simple --version-only option to return plain version

In scripts, to check the program version, it would be helpful to only have the version number. Current display of --version:

eyeD3 0.7.9-final (C) Copyright 2002-2014 Travis Shirk
This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY! See COPYING for details.
Run with --help/-h for usage information or read the docs at

Suggestion to add --version-only option to simply output:

0.7.9-final

On the other hand, the current text could be moved to be displayed in the end of "--help" and leave "--version" for:

0.7.9-final
