OK, I certainly didn't realize this. I will stick with version 1 until
version 2 is completed and ready for use. I do think, for those who want to
try it, that the documentation should always be updated with a list of which
toolsets are supported; otherwise it is a guessing game with which compilers
it works as the natural asssumption, given no list, is that it works with
the same set of compilers as version 1.
