Support for toolsets not present in BBv2 is dependant on developers
contributing them, so if you have (or care to write) a mipspro toolset
for BBv2, please submit it so that Volodya, Dave or Rene could add it.

Other toolsets or things that need porting include (but are not limited
* CW - discrepencies in the flags for things like <inline>all
* CW - currently supports Windows only, but CW also supports MacOS
* DMC - missing
* EDG/ECCP - missing
* GCC - support for the architecture settings (e.g. x86-pentium3);
* Intel KAI C++ (KCC) - missing
* Compaq Alpha CXX (tru64cxx) - missing
* MIPSPro - missing

Other toolsets not present in BBv2 *or* BBv2...
* OpenWatcom - open source compiler
* WiX - open source installer generator for Windows
* InstallShield - commercial installer generator for Windows
* Sun Java
* Microsoft .NET languages (C#, J# and VB.NET)
