It's not a explicit stated declaration (hence my quoting
the word "standard"), but it is implied by the following:

* Regression results for 1.33.1 include a set of results labeled
"vc-8_0" which were produced by a 32 bit version of MSVC 8.0
CVS-RC_1_33_0/RudbekAssociates.html )

* These regression results have been transferred to boost/
libs/expected_results.xml, where they're being used to detemine
what's to be considered a regression in 1.34 and what's
a new failure.

* expected_results.xml marks "msvc-8.0" as an alias of "vc-8_0".
