Having started working on this now, I've discovered there are a few issues 
with this approach.

1) With the current argument handling logic, this would only work if the 
user specifies "-v" first: if user specifies "-version" first then 
argument handling stops immediately, the version is shown & Ant exits.

2) When "-v -version" is specified by the user, the current argument 
handling logic actually shows the Ant version twice.

I would prefer not to do a major rewrite of the argument handling logic 
just to implement this feature. Is anyone opposed to adding a new 
"-fullversion" argument?
