Subject: [boost] [build] VC++ 2017 version number?
From: Beman Dawes (bdawes_at_[hidden])
Date: 2017-03-13 19:34:52 in develop is treating VC++2017 RTW (aka RTM) as msvc-14.1.

Yet the Visual Studio 2017 RTW Help "About Microsoft Visual Studio" shows
the version as "15.0.0-RTW+26228.4"

Shouldn't follow Microsoft's numbering? Seems like calling 2017
RTW anything except 15.0 is a recipe for confusion.
