I don't see why. Peter just mentioned what you could find out by reading
the Boost Library guidelines, and by running "bjam --help".

The toolset names are documented in the getting started docs. And the
version number is irrelevant.

No. Just reading the getting started docs
Which you would do if you are a user.

No. The version is irrelevant. And in the case of some toolsets, like
msvc, detected automatically. You don't need to specify the version if
you are a user.
