Enhancement: "--version" option hard to find

Hmmmm, what version of svn am I using? (1.0.3 actually.)

"svn help" didn't reveal any useful information. The book
mentions "--version." Going back to the executable, there does
seem to be some help text inside mentioning this option, but how
do I get svn to print it out?. Googling & poking around the
source, I find the information available under "svn help help."

1. This is wrong -- "svn help --version" produces the same result
   as "svn help help". "svn --version" is required.

2. It's pretty hard to find the option "--version" via svn help.

3. Things like "svn info -v" print an error ("subcommand 'info'
   doesn't accept option '-v [--verbose]'), but "svn info
   --version" simply prints the help for svn info.

Thanks for the work guys, I can't express how nice it is to be
free of cvs.
