I'm +1 for this, too.
It is nearly impossible to support "standard" configurations for some
20+ toolset with several subvariants.
I have 3 different gcc configurations already and have to disable some
warning for gcc-3.4.0 (-Wno-deprecated) when evaluating this compiler.
My co-workers still use gcc-3.3.2 and do not even have 3.4.0 installed.
The same issue arises when testing other compilers ... (and commiting
the Jamfiles, of course...)
