Please ignore my previous message. I just figured out that the bug I
mentioned in two previous messages is not a bug. :-( Sorry for confusion.

It should fail because 'using msvc : default ;' is an equivalent of
'using msvc ;'. In other words if a user needs to configure several
versions she has to use explicit version numbers.
