Bug Description

$ yum list installed | fgrep xtra
percona-xtrabackup.x86_64 2.0.4-484.rhel5 installed

$ /usr/bin/innobackupex --version

First line of /usr/bin/innobackupex --version should say rela version of 2.0.4

I think it has already been reported a number of times, and we have always responded with "this is the original version of the innobackup script from InnoDB Hot Backup, so we will keep it as is".

But I don't see any reasons to keep the original version. innobackupex --version should report the real version, similar to xtrabackup --version.
