You're absolutely right: in the next release they'll be non static so
that they can be called from the program itself; moreover, one of the
next feature, is also to customize, both the help and the version, so
that one can print those information in  GNU standard way.

If you feel like making these modifications (or you have already done),
please mail them to me :-)
