Boost.Build feature for C++ version would be nice, but I don't think this
would help the markup. If you look at the markup file[1], you'll notice that
one can only identify toolsets by their names, not even by tester names. So
unless format of that file changes, it's preferable if the toolset name
reflects its configuration.
