Great to hear, I might also add that I have found them useful with different
targets or when there is more than one version of a toolset:


For Python, projects can ensure that the correct version is used (2.5 vs
2.6/3.x)  since old code may not yet be converted and new code won't run on
the old tools.

For C, generation of 64 bit or 32 bit (cross compiled) executables, and I
would expect that you could also have a Windows version.
