Completion API is coupled to workspaces

Currently the API requires using Workspace API, which means I have to use VS14 or MSBuild Tools for VS14 (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25504951/msbuildworkspace-create-throws-exception).
Our Visual Studio extension heavily relies on Roslyn, but we have to support the previous versions (10, 12, 13) as well as the new one. Is there any chance we will see a more friendly intellisense API before the production Roslyn release?

Thank you in advance.

Don't know if this helps you, but personally I'm compiling Roslyn against an older MSBuild version. After adjusting the projects to reference the older MSBuild assemblies I'm building it successfully with VS 2012 (version 11). It runs fine on machines which never had a newer VS version installed.

Thanks for suggestion, I will try it.
