    What I don't know is why
    the current method was chosen (I inherited this aspect of the code).

Geez.  I see my first ChangeLog entry for printversion is back in 1996.
8 years ago, there was no real attempt at integrating all these
different engines.  In fact the term "engine" itself had not come into

Regularizing the --version output sounds like a good idea to me.
