I think there's a gotcha with your patch. If someone use:

using intel-win 8.0 : .... ; ;
using intel-win 8.0 : .... : vc6 ;

Then the defalt value of base-vc subfeature will be vc6, and there will be no
way to invoke compiler in non-vc6 emulation mode.

This is a general issue: we have a problem whenever it's possible to omit some
of the configuration parameter of a compiler. I'm going to post a separate
email of the issue, and will commit the rest of your patch once we decide
what to do.
