Note that from CMake's pov this is the target IDE with the v141 toolset by
default, see :
Because VS can be used with different compilers (as STL and others
clarified before), you can also
tell CMake to use another toolset using CMAKE_GENERATOR_TOOLSET as
specified in this link.
The GUI will also present a command line flag in case you do not want to
use the default toolset.
So basically it's "Visual Studio 15 2017" with "v141" toolset to be
precise, which mean that they get the choice of version name right if I
follow STL's advice.
