In message 7357 I posted some questions and never got the answer. I
still can not find any clear exlanation on how to use bjam
difference keyword to account for changed compiler options.

Most important change with Express is that there is no more single-
threaded static CRT library and multi-threaded (changed to support
single-threade use, according to the docs) is to be used instead.

Many string functions are deprecated and 'secure' alternatives are
expected to be used, like strcpy_s intead of strcpy.

There are also few compilation errors that I reported to boost
developers group.

The impression that I get is that Express will be more
representative (compiler, rather than IDE-wise) of the final product
(i.e. will be more frequently updated because it is intended also
for students who don't have MSDN subscription, plus it deprecates
things that are not yet deprecated in 'real' thing.)
