which is quite buggy and missing a lot of C#7 features.

@prashant Marek's concern was that it should be same or newer than version `2.0.0-61110`. You can check that on your installation as:

$ mono /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/4.8.0/lib/mono/msbuild/15.0/bin/Roslyn/csc.exe -version

For 4.9.0 or master, though, csc.exe is not included with msbuild at all. So, this applies only to C9 release.
