Hmm, thinking about this, maybe we should change bbv2 to omit the version
number like bbv1 did. When I originally tested this, the names were OK,
'cos I just had:

using borland ;

in my config file, but now that I've changed to support multiple borland
versions in my config the names are wrong :-(

What will be the method used by end users to build and install Boost with
bbv2? Will they have to edit config files first, or is there a simpler
syntax, and if so, is it "versioned" for Borland or not?

Just thinking out loud, and trying to get my head around this :-)

Thanks, John.
