If we're to try move C++ Boost to V2, then should we implement
autoconfiguration for toolset, and in what form?
Now, if you run "bjam --v2" on a fresh checkout you get a message that no
toolsets are configured. There are two ways around this:
using gcc : auto ;
using msvc : auto ;
to user config that will configure all toolsets there are, but don't complain
if some toolsets don't exist.
2. Arrange for "bjam --v2 toolset=whatever" to try automatically loading
toolset "whatever" and issuing
using whatever ;
This, however, still requires user to provide the name of toolset.
