Boost-Build :

Over at IRC, and on mailing list, it seems --toolset option confuses
folks -- they extrapolate the syntax and try to use "--link=static"
and so on.

I think we probably better either:

1. Rename --toolset to --autoconfigure-toolset, or something.
It might be better to disable auto-configuration for "toolset=foo" syntax
at the same time, to make "toolset" feature no longer "special".

2. Remove "--toolset" completely. Retain autoconfiguration
for "toolset=foo" and tell users to use "toolset=foo".

For reasons I don't understand, I prefer (2). Comments?
