I don't see that standard being followed b/c not a single toolset I see has
all these elements on the regression pages. Plus there are are variations
like 'msvc-stlport' -- which I'm not sure how the form above accounts for this
variant. Also 'vc7' is lacking a dash and has a different name from msvc, etc.

I realize I don't have to look at them for release, but this is an ongoing
problem with regression testers coming and going. Before we've reached this
point I had to rework a bunch of regression markup simply b/c the regression
testers had changed the names of toolsets -- not because of any real state
change in library or compilers. Also, I'm very interested in making sure gcc
on Solaris continues to work so I need to look at the bigger list (btw, is
there some reason this isn't one of the release compiler set?). When I look
at the bigger list, it makes me wonder why fft-icc_8.1.30, which appears to be
similar to Martin Wille's intel-8.1-linux, has tons of failures -- so then I
start looking at it spending time...
