I disagree with both assertions. It's not very different (darwin.jam
contains only a small amount of additional code), and even if it were,
the differences should not result in a different toolset name.

Configuring python on windows and unix is very different, but you
wouldn't call the windows python toolset "win32" instead of "python,"
would you?
