Yes it already works. But it is certainly not complete (i.e. does not
support all flags yet). Next it is not tested yet on other projects so
it will certainly need additional work to make it more generic.

Yes. But I prefer to start with the most simple solution possible and
then add logic to add. I can of course copy-past functionality from
other toolsets but then I don't know really what I am doing and thus it
will be impossible to answer questions regarding the toolsets.

it still need some work before others can really use it. Initially I
want to verify if just compiles everything. Next I'll add all possible
options that I think are necessary and I will (try to) add the
intelligent logic that is also present in the C++ toolsets. And then I
think it will be ready for prime time.
