And I'm inclined the other way :-) The reason I gave earlier was that
having all that auto detection code in msvc.jam makes for a harder to
read and maintain toolset file. For example the detection code in
msvc.jam is half of the file, and it's not until about 2/3 down in the
file when you get to see the flags, etc.

Or we eventually get to the point where can we run "cc --version" (or
equivalent thereof) to ask the compiler directly.
