      Description

      As a newbie, I want kafka command line tools to offer a --version flag to print the kafka version, so that it's easier to work with the community to troubleshoot things.

      As a mitigation, users can query the package management system. But that's A) Not necessarily a newbie's first instinct and B) Not always possible when kafka is installed manually from tarballs.
