support setting a custom logger for msbuild from within visual studio without an extension

One can implement a custom logger for msbuild (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms171471.aspx) and supplying it in the /logger parameter.

This works like a charm when using msbuild from outside of visual studio. Inside of visual studio there is not way to supply a logger to msbuild.

It can be accomplished by writing a visual studio extension - but this adds an additional hurdle and sometimes is not an option.

We also don't want to resort to workaround like: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28733875/can-a-msbuild-custom-logger-be-specified-within-a-project-file/28806181#28806181
