Has the VC8 toolset just changed name?

I have

using msvc : all ;

and VC8 is detected as "msvc-8.0express", apart from the fact that there
should probably be a hyphen between the "8.0" and the "express", what's the
motivation behind giving this a different name from the full VC8?
Especially given the fact that the two toolsets are surely identical in
every other way?

Thanks, John.
