What about adding the version number info into the -v (Verbose Output) area?
That way by running the verbose output on a recovery, you could see at a
glance exactly which version you were running without having to scroll
anywhere! Seems to me like a much better place for it than adding it into
the -h (Help area). Obviously -V (Version) will still serve a purpose like
it does now, but adding the version info into the verbose output could make
things even more intuitive!

This is a good idea! It does not interfere with man page creation, and is so easy to implement that I have implemented it as I read your message. :-)

$ ddrescue -vfs1 /dev/zero /dev/null

GNU ddrescue 1.15-rc2
About to copy 1 Bytes from /dev/zero to /dev/null

   ipos:         0 B,   errors:       0,    average rate:        1 B/s
   opos:         0 B,     time from last successful read:       0 s

It will be available in the next release of ddrescue.
