Subject: [boost] [config] Handle upcoming XP-target toolset of VC11
From: Lars Viklund (zao_at_[hidden])

Hi list.

Microsoft are testing their update system for Visual Studio 2012 [1],
which includes a v110_xp toolset [2] for "restoring" support for
building software that may run on Windows XP.

In essence, it uses a repurposed Windows 7 SDK with the VS 2012
compiler, instead of the Windows 8 SDK used in the normal v110 toolset.

What implications do you think this has for Boost.Config and all the
things predicated on MSC_VER, as this decorrelates the compiler version
from the Windows SDK it uses.

Has anyone installed these pre-release bits and given it a shot?

(I've mailed boost-build@ about the Boost.Build implications.)
