Yea I know... People tend not to listen and do their own thing :-( Some
of the exceptions are historical msvc vs. vc-6, vc7 vs. vc-7. The test I
run have all those those elements of course :-)
(gcc-4_0_0-linux-i686-release). But what I didn't say originally is that
unless it makes a difference the various parts can be ommited. For
example there's no point in having the platform and cpu for VC. And the
build should only be there if it's different the default "debug".

But it's a soon to dissapear problem. After this release we'll be
switching to BBv2 which doesn't have the same toolset naming problems.

Don't know.. It usually only takes one person willing to guarantee they
are going to put effort into supporting the toolset platform
combination, as I do for CW on Windows (and a bit less so on MacOSX). If
you have that platform around, as in a machine you use, you can ask the
release manager to consider making it a release platform.
