If it has not been decided yet, I'd go for the 'it has helped me already' as I
have defined my own feature not to be link-compatible so I guess I am actively
using the feature.

And as a side note - I've just found out that msvc-6.0 is not link-compatible
with msvc-7.1 but bjam does not define those two to be link-incompatible.

And a question - I have bunch of declarations such as

lib cppunit : : <name>cppunit60 <variant>release <toolset-msvc:version>6.0
<search>d:/software/cppunit-1.8.0/lib ;

I've determined the syntax only by try-and-error and by searching through the
source files of v2 (Is there some documentation for it? I've searched for
'condition'...). I expected

lib cppunit : : <name>cppunit60 <variant>release <toolset>msvc-6.0
<search>d:/software/cppunit-1.8.0/lib ;

What is wrong with that?
