Yes, it seems like an oversight to me. Printing --version to stdout is more customary (Python itself does it, and most other tools do too).

A question comes up about backwards compatibility. I would definitely not change it in 2.x - it's just not worth it. As for 3.x, should this go into 3.3 too or just 3.4?
