Is there any reason for including the <wide-character-support> option in the
Borland toolset: this is set to on by default in features jam, and then
selectively turned off for <borland>, this means that if I inherit a toolset
from borland-tools.jam (I want multiple toolsets to test different Borland
versions) then it gets turned on again in the inherited toolset and nothing
compiles anymore.

BTW this option should *not* be turned on by default - the effect of -WU is
to make the linker look for a Unicode entrypoint:

int wmain(int argc, wchar_t** argv);

and since no boost code uses such an entry point this is obviously a
mistake. Also since only borland-tools.jam provides this option, I think we
can just remove all reference to it (or at the very least rename it to
something more suitable and turn it off by default in features.jam).
