As discussed:

The patch does the following:

Adds an Execution line to the \? output.
Changes the help output in mainloop.c to be more useful.
Greatly reduces overall default banner output:
 * shows client version and type help for help only
   * if server doesn't match shows server version too
 * if there is a major version mismatch it throws a warning
