Just want to remind, that in fact there is a huge difference between the
both methods with respect to handling (stripping off) version numbers.

The [--]toolset= approach may auto register a wrong (unintended) version
instead of using the one configured in user-config.jam.

I already reported this, but I am not sure if this already has been fixed.
