Hmm, if any script is running the current 'virsh --version' command
to get the version number then this will break their usage. I think
we should require a different and/or extra flag to print the
extended data. --version is not a great place since this isn't
really version information.

Apache uses  -v for plain version number, and -V for version number
plus build options/info
