My guess is that it never worked in fact.

The answer to this question is simple. There's feature <toolset>, there's
subfeature version of <toolset>msvc, but the "feature" module does not
support default values for subfeatures. So, when you run "bjam" the build
request contains only


and nothing about version. BTW, a desire of default values for subfeatures is
mentioned in comment on line 131 of msvc.jam --- though for a little bit
different reason.
