Could you elaborate? I happen to work on precisely that at the moment. The
current behaviour is pretty similar to V1. You get one path component for
base toolset ("iw") and one path component for version ("8.0", "8.1", you
name it). The only difference from V1 is that there's only one toolset
description file, and versions are specified in user's 'user-config.jam'.

If you can say what changes to the scheme are necessary, I sure they can be
quickly implemented.
