No, that's a different but related problem. Martin's complaint, IIUC,
is that if you misspell a toolset version name on the command-line,
you can end up autoconfiguring a different toolset than the one you
intended to use, which is configured in your xxx-config.jam.

Yes. And as nobody seems to be telling me in general how to parse
toolset descriptions like xxx-vvv-sss-ttt, or what the intended
semantics are, it probably won't be fixed, at least not by me.
