Are you sure? If so, we should fix that. The toolset already has
code to detect the version being used. Maybe this would assuage some
of Volodya's concern about a toolset twice, once with and once without
a version number.

I'd rather make it "just work" than complicate the instructions. I do
say that you can add an explicit version number if you choose to, but
obviously that ain't enough.
