Do you mean that in user-config I specify configurations for all
toolsets installed on my PC, and then use whatever toolset I want just
by specifying its name on commandline?

Does msvc really means toolset=msvc? I got "unknown value for toolset
feature" errors before, but now toolset=msvc works.

The documentation looks unclear for me now. I'll try to contribute
getting started guide.

What if I have both msvc 7.1 and 8.0? How should I specify them both in

Can I build with multiple configurations with multiple toolsets at once?
